Catlin writes from the Dragoon Camp on the Red River: ... I am well and in the daily expectation of an [illegible] interesting meeting with Pawnees and Comanches after which I shall make the quickest march home again that I can hopefully make ...The public are expecting that I will see these Indians or I should almost be ready to abandon the expectation & come home ... 800 mounted men on these green prairies furnishes one of the most picturesque scenes I ever saw - I would be glad that you could see them. You will see my sketches [at] home.
