Indeed, thank you!  :)
"as [you've] informed us that respect chills love, it is natural to conclude that all your pretty flights arise from your pampered sensibility; and that, vain of this fancied preeminence of organs, you foster every emotion till the fumes, mounting to your brain, dispel the sober suggestions of reason. It is not in this view surprising that when you should argue you become impassioned, and that reflection inflames your imagination instead of enlightening your understanding." - Mary Wollstonecraft

Wow!  Great photos!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

I was surprised that color photography was being expermented with that early, as opposed to tint-types that were colrized after being developed.

Btw, regarding the second pic... is outrage! Everyone knows that 19th century Russians wore drab outfits. Such peacockerish showoffynish is disgusting!  :P

Absolutely beautiful pictures!! Isn't it amazing how very "modern" everyone looks when photographed in colour, rather than black and white?

That's probably because that's how the brain is used to seeing real life.  Black and white gives things a sense of unreality, remoteness.
