By the aid of New Chemical Agents, most splendid results are obtained; and multitudes are being delighted daily at the astonishing perfection to which, in point of delineation, boldness and unerring truthfulness, this art has so suddenly attained.  In an instant, as it were, upon the shining silver surface is portrayed the laughing countenance of Joyous youth, with all its freshness.  From the most aged to the verist child, it is equally applicable as the unerring delineator of life.  Delay not, then, as opportunity shall present, to secure one, two, three or six of these mementoes of life, which under the trying circumstances of a final separation from friends, no price can purchase.

Miniatures taken every day, in any style, in Lockets of any size or description, or in common cases, in a superior manner.
