John H. Frobus appeared in one announcement on November 19, 1852 in the New Orleans Daily Crescent (New Orleans, Louisiana). 

From woman’s eyes this doctrine I derive:

The are the books, the art, the academies

Which show, contain, and nourish all the world.

Had Mahomet heard of daguerreotypes, he might have propagated his doctrines all the faster by showing the portrait of his Celestial Houris!  By the buy, Frobus, 72 Chartres street, is very successful in that all important feature of a daguerreotype likeness—the eye.

John H. Frobus is recorded in Craig’s Daguerreian Registry as being active in New Orleans, Louisiana  between 1855 to 1861.
