Narrative description: 
View of mountains. On the lower left, "by H. C. Pratt," with "nov 1852" beneath. Bartleet and Pratt traveled beween El Paso and Chihuahua City from October 12 to October 22, 1852, not during the month of November. Shortly after this segment of the voyage, Pratt and Bartlett parted company, never again to reunite during the Boundary Commission. The handwriting on this drawing appears to be Bartlett's leading the speculation that this is a JRB copy of the Pratt original.
