John E. Hulbert was recorded in two announcements and three advertisements.  The first announcement appeared on March 10, 1855 in the Southern Sentinel (Plaquemine, Louisiana).  Hulbert & Co.’s. Daguerreotypes.  The card of this firm will be seen in another column.  Their Daguerreotypes are of the finest description, which all may know who visit their elegant rooms on the corner of Camp and Common Streets, New Orleans.

The first advertisement ran from March 10, 1856 to April 5, 1856 in the Southern Sentinel (Plaquemine, Louisiana).  J. E. Hulbert & Co., Daguerreotypist.  26 Camp Street—Corner of Common.  New Orleans.

The second announcement appeared on October 18, 1855 in The Ripley Advertiser (Ripley, Mississippi).  Daguerreotypes For One Dollar!  By reference to his car in our advertising columns, it will be seen that Mr. J. E. Hulbert, Daguerreotypist, of New Orleans, will open his Daguerrean Rooms, in Ripley, on the 23d inst.  Those who wish really fine Daguerreotypes, at a trifling cost, had better avail themselves of the opportunity now offered.  We subjoin the following from many no less complimentary notices of the press:

j. e. Hulbert, 26 Camp street, is offering great inducements to all wishing Daguerreotype Likenesses.—The pictures at this establishment are fine specimens of the Art, and clearly shows the proprietor to be master of his Profession.—N. O. Picayune.

We but express the sentiments of this entire community when we say that Mr. Hulbert has given much better satisfaction than any operator who has visited our town.—Holly Springs, Miss., Times.

The second advertisement ran from October 18 to November 1, 1855 in The Ripley Advertiser.  (Ripley, Mississippi).  Daguerreotypes For One Dollar!  The Citizens of Tippah County, are respectfully informed that I will open my Daguerrean Rooms In Ripley, On The 23rd October.  Having a large assortment of the Finest Apparatus and Materials, together with long experience in the art, the public may rely upon receiving likenesses fully Equal if not Superior to any yet executed in the country.  As my stay will be short all are invited to call at once and avail themselves of the opportunity now offered for securing really Fine Daguerreotypes At About Half Price.  All work warranted to please, or no charge.

Persons who have heretofore failed to procure correct likenesses, are especially invited to give me a trial.  My stay in Ripley will not exceed three weeks, because my Daguerrean Gallery in New Orleans will require my presence there by that time at the farthest.           J. E. Hulbert.

The third advertisement ran from July 13 to 27, 1859 in The South-Western.  (Shreveport, Louisiana).  To Artist.  having concluded to change my business as an artist, I offer for sale at New Orleans Prices, my entire stock, consisting of a very fine assortment of all kinds, sizes and qualities of Cases, Chemicals of all kinds, fine glass, white, black and convex, of all sizes.  also two fine Cameras, and in fact everything pertaining to a well regulated Daguerrean Gallery.  The above articles can be seen at Mr. James F.
