Trading Post in Nebraksa

The German Title of This Original Möllhausen Drawing Seems To Make It Almost Certain That the Interior View Above Was That of the Famous Training Post of the American Fur Company at Bellevue (Nebraska) in 1852. Quite Possibly, Too, Müllhausen Has Included Himself in the Sketch (the Figure at the Right Facing the Indian Group), With None Other Than "Colonel" Sarpy, Himself, at Müllhausen's Left. The Original Sketch No Longer Exists. Courtesy, the Staatliches Museum, Berlin.
