I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, I'm saddened to hear that the family of abolitionist John Brown let a photo of him slip out of family hands (apparently a necessity to pay medical bills). On the other hand, anyone who pays almost $100,000 for it is likely to take good care of it. Guess I'll rest in the hope that the mystery buyer was representing a museum.
