Portrait of Mrs Harriet Beecher Stowe, Published by Mr Morison Kyle, of Glasgow. March 1853

An article on page five of The Glasgow Herald, on Monday the 14th of March, 1853, reads:


Portrait of Mrs. Beecher Stowe. – We have seen a very creditable portrait of the eminent

authoress of ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin,’ which has just been published by Mr. Morison Kyle of this

city. We believe the portrait is unimpeachable in the great element of accuracy, for the

likeness is from a daguerreotype expressly taken in America. Although Mrs. Stowe is very soon

to be in Glasgow, her many admirers will thus have an opportunity of making an acquaintance

with her intelligent countenance beforehand.”
