Editorial comment for this plate:


Our Illustration.—Our frontispiece for this month is intended to illustrate a line from one of the most sublime and at the same time pathetically tender of the Psalms, “He leadeth me beside the still waters.” The stream is one of the numerous picturesque ones in Dutchess County, N. Y.. and bears the not euphonious title of “Wappinger’s Creek.” The lens used was the new Zeiss anastigmat, and the plate was a Stanley. The reproduction is exceedingly well done, and preserves the carefully managed perspective and gradation of tone in the negative. We feel our readers will be moved to take their cameras and try their fortunes likewise, now that Spring is upon us, the best photographic season of the year. (p. 165)
