Joseph Walker and Arapeen  1854 Deseret News Article advertising Route From Liverpool

Location: unknown

History: A sketch was made by Frederick Hawkins Piercy from the original pictures which were then in the possession of the W.W. Major's family. This drawing was published in Piercy’s book, Route from Liverpool to Great Salt Lake Valley, with this explanation: "The late Joseph Walker, one of the leading chiefs of the Utahs, was generally very friendly to the L.D. Saints, and so also is Arapeen, his successor. We here introduce their portraits sketched from a painting in possession of the late Elder W.W. Major."44
