Editorial comment for this plate:


Our Illustration.—The title of this month’s frontispiece aptly describes it. “Making Friends,” one can easily see, would not be difficult where such perfect confidence evidently exists as in this case. The picture reminds us of Verboeckhoven’s animal paintings, and plainly disproves the narrow and illiberal judgment which would deprive photography of her close relationship to painting and sculpture. Miss Mary E. Martin, from whose negative our reproduction was made, is a prominent member of the New York Camera Club, and the scene was in the picturesque region surrounding Cooperstown, N. Y. We feel sure our readers cannot fail to enjoy the pastoral beauty of this illustration and its artistic composition, to say nothing of its technical excellence. (p. 206)
