Sixth plate ambrotype of a gent, apparently invalided and perhaps on death's door, sitting in bed and reading from a large book. Uncased Cuttings-Patent style image with traces of tinting in light red.   ( Inventory# ia641 )

The sitter's direct, even aggressive, stare lend significance to the book he holds, perhaps a bible.
