Progress Notes, Redux

I put my manuscript back in the rack today, cleaning up mistakes both large and small, working especially hard on the last two poems I wrote, one of which ("The Apprentice Lithographer's Story") I very much like.

I am tired.

Crimea War 1853-1856
"Charge of the Light Cavalry Brigade 25th October, 1854"

From the original tri-tinted lithograph by Edmund Walker after William Simpson, R.I., FRGS (1823-1899).

Published by Day & Son, Lithographers to the Queen, London, May 24, 1855.

Day & Son were the (ultimately, unsuccessful) lithographers chosen for Martin Johnson Heade's "Gems of Brazil" project.
