Mr Fenton the celebrated & his Photographer & his assistant have been actively employed in front of late[.] His duties in the British Museum will compell him to leave the Crimea in about 3 weeks but such has been his zeal & energy in spite of winter weather & occassionally Russian missles [sic] that he will carry with him about 800 views of Sebastipol & its vicinity. They will no doubt be highly prized in England for their accuracy & beauty[.] The plates are of a large size in some of them every window of the large buildings in the Town can be counted[.] Among the most interesting will be a panaramic [sic] Sun picture of the Town & its fortifications with the distant hills taken from the old Russian Redoubt, or, as it has been called since Sir George Cathcart was buried there “Cathcarts Hill”, in front of the 4h Division
