H.J. Rodgers Twenty-Three Years Under a Sky-Light, or Life and Experiences of a Photographer (Hartford: H.J. Rodgers, 1872), p.222.
 
While this work was in press the publisher learned with sadness and deep sorrow of the death of Prof. Samuel F. B. Morse. The memory of this great and good man will ever live in the hearts of the people, and not only is this nation indebted to him for the inestimable benefits of his miraculous invention, which are shared with all alike, but the whole enlightened portion of the globe unite in gratefully acknowledging the value of his services as a public benefactor. Professor Morse was also one of the founders of the photographic art, (as referred to elsewhere in this book) and has always been a devoted friend to the photographer, looking forward for the progress of the art with intense interest and anxiety. The magnetic power and results of his incomparable genius have electrified the world, while his personal influence seemed warming and cheering among his race, and with the glowing radiance of his expansive mind, beautified by a pure and noble heart, cast a halo of progressive brilliancy over a wide-spread civilization and Christianity. "What has God wrought."
