The advertisement ran from January 23 to March 6, 1845.  Photographic Miniatures.  Mr. Johnson has the pleasure of informing his friends that he is now ready, at his rooms over the Post Office, to give them Very Superior Photographic Miniatures, on reasonable terms.  As his stay is necessarily short, and he came prepared to do a limited business, those who wish pictures would do well to call immediately.  Rooms open from 9 A.
