    Inscribed CDV of Hispanic Cowboy, 1881. Rare and wonderful full-length image of a whiskered Hispanic cowboy, posed in a studio setting with his holster and gun prominently displayed. Photographed by J. Pacheco. Delicately calligraphed note on verso reads: "A mi querida esposa, recuerdo de cariño. Jorge Foreman. Traje de Ranchero. Cañada de Negros, 5 Enero de 1881." Foreman reminds his wife of his love for her, while he works on a ranch in Guanajuato, Mexico. From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.
