Notes
Content: Printed on border: " 'The Hon. Tookooloto Jabinkoker, delegate from the Kodiak District of the former Russian possessions, arrived yesterday from New Archangel. He dined at Delmonico's, and ordered the repast in the haute cuisine of Kodiak : train oil for two ; tallow candles for one ; whale blubber for one (but substituted raw pork, as the other was not to be had) ; asked for a seal's fin, but took India-rubber, faute de mieux, with a glass of spirits of turpentine ; wanted a rat in an advanced state of decomposition, but had to put up with a bad egg.' " Written on mount: "May 4, 1867" "Alaska Purchase"
