The following editorial comment for Mid Winter appears in the March, 1890 issue:


Our Illustration.
ALTHOUGH the past winter has not been prolific of snow storms in this section of the country, there have still been some snow falls which have clothed all nature in garments of white, and given opportunities for winter work in the open air. By general consent snow scenes are difficult subjects for the photographer, who finds that he has caught but little of the beauty of the scene which entranced his eye. But some may succeed where many fail, and Mrs. Appleton’s “Mid-Winter” belongs to the small class of successes in winter work. We take pleasure in presenting so fine a specimen of woman’s photographic work to our readers as well as Mrs. Appleton’s pleasant paper on the subject. (p. 79)
