Man w/Beard, ca. 1854-1860

Man w/Beard, ca. 1854-1860
Here is a right gentleman with a fine beard. And while one might be tempted to think that he was emulating emancipator Abraham Lincoln, in point of fact, this man's facial adornment predates the growth upon Lincoln's chin. Perhaps it was Lincoln who was emulating this man.

A jovial chap though disparage him and his facial hair growth and he'll club you with that small club in his hand. Don't cross a jovial chap with fine facial hair. Don't.

How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have thankless commenter.

It saddens me to see you here, Jonathan. It is a hurt on par with my loss of poor, simple-minded Joseph. The interns will not take this turn of events well.
