WAS IT COILED? That was some very strange hair happening on the sides of the little lad’s head when he restlessly sat (not very still) for his resealed sixth plate portrait. His mother did her best to make him presentable. I wonder how many chances (to get him taken unmoving) were made before mom and the dag man settled for this likeness? Hey the boy DID keep one arm motionless on that small chair arm. That . . . should count for something! Some mold mites and speckled tarnish mostly surrounded the subject, whose shirt was a wonderful pattern. There are mat marks along the left side. The bottom of a common leather case is present.
