The impression of this baby's right hand I took twenty-four hours after its birth. Impression of very young children's hands are very hard to take, as the flesh is so soft and pliable and the little ones will not keep still.
In this case, Plate VIII, I succeeded very well and the lines maybe quite clearly seen. 1 made this impression many years ago and the 'baby' has now grown to be a man. He has done very well in a business career (Probably due to the upper line of head lying so straight across the hand).
