Traveling Photographer Takes Daguerreotype Of Sick Woman In Bed 1853 Letter For Sale

An original handwritten letter from G.E. Hubbell to his brother, dated New York, February 17, 1853, with interesting content. He describes being absorbed with unraveling the New York Code of legal Practice, which leads me to believe he is an attorney. He fears his father will be cheated on purchasing a house because he has previously cheated the same man, refuses to lend his friend Sidney money to go to California, and suggests his brother open a hotel and bar room in the growing town of Charlottesville, which is on a fine plank road and expecting railroad service. There is a Seminary there of 500 students, and a college will be opening soon. Of most interest is his account of the sickness of his sister who has taken to bed for over six weeks, and how he has brought in a traveling photographer to take her daguerreotype image, a common practice with sick and dying people at the time this letter was written. Three pages, 7 1/4" x 9 3/4", folds, very good condition. A nice letter written by an educated man......Guaranteed original.....$4.00 shipping.............
