Garrison wrote that "Out of a hundred daguerreotypes that have been taken of me, not one is worth looking at a second time. The failure is absolute, wheter it be Brady in your city or South[worth] or Whipple here." Garrison to Oliver Johnson, May 1, 1858, in Walter M. Merrill and Louis Ruchames, eds., The Letters of William Llyod Garrison(Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1971-81), vol.4, pp.523-24.
