Object Name Print
Scope & Content Wood engraving with a central image of Osceola's wife and child. The page is taken out of a book. Osceola's wife is shown from her waist up facing forwards. Her right arm is around the shoulder of the young boy who is positioned at a ¾ view with his face turned out. The engraving is signed "RICHARDSONSC" and below the engraving is written, "THE WIFE AND CHILD OF OSCEOLA."

The passage on the back of the page is a short narrative about the Seminoles of Florida. The page is numbered as "591" and was presumably that page in a larger book. Written at the top of the page in pencil is "Holden's v6 #4 Oct 1850" and "2004.160.1". See digital images taken 11/26/07 to read the text.
