L. C. Earle - Earlier Years in Grand Rapids

From the Grand Rapids Daily Eagle, April 6, 1867
(within a column on page 1, entitled "Personal")

L. C. Earle, Esq., intends visiting New York city the coming winter, for the purpose of studying under some of the prominent artists of that place. Two of his late piecespaintings of birdswere sold to-day to a gentleman from New York city, who was attracted by their appearance on exhibition at Nelson & Eaton's bookstore. He sought out the young artist, expressed himself both pleased and surprised with the pieces, and was not slow in agreeing on the purchase price.

From the Grand Rapids Daily Eagle, July 25, 1867
(within a column page 1, entitled "Gossip")

Stepping into the studio of our young artist Earle, on Monroe st., we found him busy painting a mink, rampant, taking for his copy a stuffed one, taken from life some time ago. His walls are nearly deserted, but little of his work being left long on his hands. An unfinished painting of his dog, guarding his gun and a brace of birds; several sketches of base ball players in different attitudes; a rough sketch or two on the animal that opened its mouth and spoke, once upon a time, and one or two water and wood scenes, comprise the collection at present in his studio. A brace of plovers, on exhibition at the bookstore of Nelson & Eaton, is one of his latest pieces, and is much admired and praised. The mate to this, a duck among the reeds, was bought by Hon. T. D. Gilbert.
