"It will also be noted, that I have spoken in considerable detail of the high attributes, both intellectual and moral, essential to a first-class heliographer. To represent, in their just proportions, the beautiful and the sublime in natural scenery; to reproduce in like manner the creations of inspired human genius; and especially to delineate the human face and figure pervaded by an expression, that bids the soul shine glowingly out through the same; are to transcribe the matchless pencilings of the Divine Proto-Artist. To do this, how imperfectly soever, demands qualities, alike of head and of heart, in rapt accordance with the Infinite Creative Spirit."
