Ta-go-nis-co-te-yeh or, Black-Fox--a Cherokee Chief. A sensible and estimable man, a friend to the whites and to the peace and order of his people. That estimable agent, Major Duval, who devoted his life to the interests of his charge, and in discharge of the arduous duties of his station as Agent for the Cherokees west of the Mississippi, and for the emigrants to that country, always spoke of him as one of the best men he had ever known. His likeness was seen a few days ago by a member of his family in Philadelphia, who instantly recognised it. "I feel no hesitation, was her remark on seeing the painting, in deciding on the likeness of Black-Fox--I knew it immediately." [P. 20; the word "immediately" appears in italics in the catalogue.]
