"Patent Ambrotypes, Great Attraction! E. C. Riggs, Ambrotype Artist,

RESPECTFULLY informs the inhabitants of MEREDITY, DELHI and FRANKLIN, that he is sole proprietor of the Patent Ambrotype in these towns, the genuine Ambrotype can be had of none else in these places.

This new and beautiful process is the invention of Prof. James A. Cutting, of Boston, by whom it is patented in the United States, Great Britain and France. These Pictures are taken on the best plate glass and places upon a corresponding glass, the two being here metrically sealed together with an indestructible cement – the picture being in the centre, as durable as glass itself.

Mr. R. has taken instruction of the best Artist in the State, and is now putting up likenesses that for richness of tone and life-like expression, are unsurpassed.

These pictures can be had at no other room in these towns, Mr. R. having purchased the exclusive right. The public are invited to call and satisfy themselves.

Rooms at the Post Office. Ouleout, September 8, 1856."
