Cartoon No. 212. FAC-SIMILE OF A SIOUX ROBE, representing combats. The vigor and action with which these figures are drawn show a native talent for art, which deserved to be encouraged. The reader is reminded that the figures on these robes are exactly reduced by a perfect camera, from the robes in my collection. [P. 47; exhibited under heading: "Indian Manners and Customs."]
