From: Hill's Manual of Social and Business Forms: A Guide to Correct Writing. (Chicago: Hill Standard Book Company, 1885, 1888.) The image here is the frontispiece, from my scan of my copy of the 1885 edition.

Others have observed that it is remarkable that someone published an engraved portrait of me in 1885. It's kind of eerie, actually.
