Romer, Pierce, Wick Reaves & Wallis, Young America: The Daguerreotypes of Southworth & Hawes (Steidl), pl. 389, p. 313.
Famous Philadelphia daguerreotypist Marcus Aurelius Root paid Sothworth & Hawes this praise: "Their style, indeed, is peculiar to themselves; presenting beautiful effects of light and shade, and giving depth and roundness together with a wonderful softness or mellowness. These traits have achieved for them a high reputation with all true artists and connoisseurs."
