Luther Burbank at the Age of Nine
No one who has personal acquaintance with the mature Luther Burbank can glance at this picture without recalling the phrase: "The child is father to the man." As to mere physical appearance the man quite commonly bears small resemblance to his boyhood self, but Mr. Burbank is a striking exception to this. This is a "speaking likeness" of the mature Luther Burbank, particularly as regards the expression about the mouth.
