The Portrait Maker Eases 1900 Women

Thank you all for gracing our
 1
establishment. Before you sit
 2
or stand—your choice—we assure
 3
results you'll like. I give this little
 4
speak each day—a cheerful monologue.
 5
 
 
So often subjects say one thing
 6
whilst their eyes betray a terror that
 7
the likeness will be—well!    Relax
 8
if you will—inspect our art.  Petite
 9
samples in our albums lead to larger
 10
 
 
scale works up the hall—down which
 11
as you will—you may all proceed.
 12
Note in passing looks you like—
 13
looks you need to please assume
 14
for a remounted monocle's
 15
mere objective stare.
 16
 
 
Here now is the most-prime
 17
truth: no lady ever is—
 18
any less than charming
 19
beauty—yes—without
 20
and more within
 21
every face that we espy.
