“MY GRANDMOTHER HUNT . . . Esther Hildreth and her daughter Samantha . . . .”? They were posed with mom seated and her adult offspring standing on a retaped sixth plate mirror. Curiously the daguerreian left one of his head restraints visible in the lower left corner of the portrait. And part of a cloth used as a reflector was visible on the naked plate (see second image). The leather case is apart.
