Book Notes
Mellon '79 [p 92]
Made from a lost copy negative of a lost retouched oval print. ... Neither the photographer's identity nor the whereabouts of the original negative has been determined. ... On his right cheek can be seen the deeply-cleft dimple which gave such force to his smile, and the lines around his right eye are likewise puckered into an expression of incipient mirth.
