|From the cover: Leavenworth in 1858, the year it was visited by H. B. Möllhausen's exploring party (see pp. 378-380) on returning from the region of the lower Colorado river. The drawing was published in Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper, New York, December 25, 1858. It was sketched by the magazine's own correspondent "from the residence of Amos Reese, Esq., situated upon an elevation near the river, in South Leavenworth, and directly facing towerd the north."|
