    This is the reverse of another copy of the photo preceding title Andrew Mitchell and Betsy Brown. This photo is held by Bruce Larkin (USA) who is a descendant of Andrew Mitchell and Betsy Brown by their daughter Isabella Mitchell Thomson. The photo had ended up with Bruce's mother. The reverse indicates it was sent by the Mitchells to their grand daughter Mrs Kennedy.

    "For Mrs. Kennedy with best wishes. A & B Mitchell". My mother annotated the photo: "Parents of Isabella Mitchell Thomson -- Andrew and Bethia Mitchell."
