Ethnographic Notes

Left Side: Another portrait of a U.S. Cavalry lieutenant, likely also intended as Sedgewick Rice, commander of the Indian Scout detachment at Fort Reno.

Right Side: This drawing probably represents a revisit to the young lady shown on Page 3. The same seat of grass or willow branches seen there appears at far right. This time, however, the couple has strolled farther on, behind the rank willow thicket, to enjoy a few moments of privacy.
