From Isidore Guérin to Mr. Tifenne - August 1, 1864

text on the reverse of this photo:  

1st August 1864.
Dear Friend, destiny, twists of fate, illness and perhaps death, will separate us in the course of our lives. If your eyes happen to fall upon this picture, you will see the features of one who has always loved you. In times of sadness it will remind you that you have a friend and in times of joy, of the happy days we spent together and the triple friendship that made our stay in Paris so enjoyable that the memory of it will remain with us as long as we shall live.

To my friend Tifenne.

Token of friendship.

I. Guérin

Bicêtre. 1st August 1864.
