An Interesting Find!

I came across this engraving by Henry Inman of Elizabeth Oakes Smith this morning. An announcement in The United States Magazine suggests that the artwork was completed sometime around 1843. That would make sense, since her book of poems was published the same year.  EOS would have been about 37 years old when she sat for this portrait. Hey, I know someone else who happens to be 37 right now- me!

Dude you have done it again. Never seen this one! I will snag it and give you credit.

Dear Internet Traveler,

Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.
