TINTYPE - WHITE & BLACK(?) WOMEN WITH AN INTERESTING
RELATIONSHIP
- Crisp tintype of the two women and a strange note in a
somewhat ominous tone, behind the image in the case. The note is dated August,
1861 and it looks like the image was taken in 1859. In the best of my transcribing it
reads: "Louisa, When shall we meet again? Changes must need be in that I fear
changes unlooked for, dark - sorrowful. Whatever, wherever I may be live thou true
to thy womanhood, thy friend and thy God / M Alice G / Aug 1861 / Hyde Park
1859". Could this be in reference to the beginning of War, Friendship between
races / is slavery implied? Interesting to say the least! Unfortunately the case is
damaged and cover detached but the note is fine and image near perfect. More
shown in 'Additional Images' link.
