DescriptionKate Pickard expresses the hope that Peter Still and his spouse Vina have been comfortable in their “own home through all the past cold winter”; reports that the book about the Still family will be issued later in the month; notes that the publisher, Mr. Hamilton, has taken as a partner in the enterprise the Auburn firm of Miller, Orton & Mulligan, a publishing house which has previously issued books on slavery; states that one engraving (of Still and his family) will be omitted, at least from the book’s first edition, as the likenesses in the proof were poor; observes that publishing the book now might actually work out better than had it appeared the previous fall; and notes, in a postscript, that the daguerreotypes consulted by the engraver are in her care and ready to be returned.
