Letts, of the Elmira firm of Hathaway & Letts, will visit Penn Yan every few days for the purpose of taking Negatives For Photographs to be finished in Elmira.  They will be taken from the smallest dimension up to life size.  They will also be handsomely and naturally colored, so as to present all the elegance and expression of a first class Oil Painting.—These Pictures are the most popular Photographs ever taken.
