A full length of Keo-kuk--or the watchful Fox. The visitor will regard the half-size likeness, No. 27, as the true likeness. This is given to show the costume of the Sauk, and Fox warrior. It may be considered the full, or court dress. The staff he grasps is the genuine war flag of these tribes. The feathers that go out from it, are eagle's feathers, none others are used. Col. McKenney brought one to the Office of Indian Affairs, where it yet remains. [P. 19; see entry 04480027 for other work noted in this commentary.]
Catalogue of One Hundred and Fifteen Indian Portraits, representing eighteen different tribes, accompanied by a few brief remarks on the character, &c. of most of them. Price 12 1/2 cents.
