Represented as about crossing a small stream, with a corn basket under her arm. She is attired in the costume, peculiar to the Creek and Seminole women. Their dress consists of calico, of a coarse, cheap kind, worked to the depth of from 12 to 15 inches from the bottom, with different colours, in various devices. We found it exceedingly difficult to get the women of this tribe to sit for their pictures, owing to the opposition of their chiefs, who do not consider them worthy of such an honor. [P. 7.]
