CASEY AND I . . . Discussed removing the tarnish that obscured the deceased child?s head, but there is always an inherent risk placing ANY liquid on the surface of a sixth plate daguerreotype that has new glass and an archival seal. The death portrait of the child is accurately rendered in my scan. Someone clipped a printed poem on paper and pinned it to the green pad inside the very worn leather case that has a professionally repaired spine.
