Washington The University of Tennessee Press / Knoxville h Copyright © 2012 by The University of Tennessee Press / Knoxville. All Rights Reserved. Manufactured in the United States of America. First Edition. Frontispiece: A carte de visite of a daguerreotype of E. D. E. N. Southworth in her library at Prospect Cottage , date unknown. According to a note in Southworth’s hand in her papers at the Library of Congress, the daguerreotype “was taken on the spur of the moment. The artist was here to take the baby. While waiting for her to wake, he wanted to take me. I had no time to get myself up for a picture and so if he took me, he would have to take me, as I was, at my work. I was correcting the proofs. He fixed his camera in the porch door of the library. I told him I must work until he was quite ready; but if he would tell me when I would stop and sit still. I was directing the envelope, when he said ‘now.’ I sat back to rest and he took me.” Wm. B.
