Of this and m46: "In each instance the mirror image of the daguerrotype has been reversed in order to show how the Lincolns actually looked." [I believe this statement is in error for Lincoln, but correct for m46.]

Attributed to Nicholas H. Shepherd, based on the recollections of Gibson W. Harris, a law student in Lincoln's office from 1845 to 1847. (Gibson William Harris, "My Recollections of Abraham Lincoln," Women's Home Companion (November 1903), 9-11.) Robert Lincoln, son of the President, thought the photo was made in either St. Louis or Washington during his father's term in Congress.
