The Cover

One of several views of Kansas credited to the fourth Viscount Southwell, about 1866, in a Times Literary Supplement of 1962 published in London. (Lithograph by Vincent Brooks, Day & Sons, London, England.) The print reproduced here is through the courtesy of the Chicago Historical Society. The color was added by an artists of the McCormick-Armstrong company, Wichita.

As for the viscount's picture, it was probably completed in England by artists who made the train look more English than Western American. "Kit Carson" and "Fort Riley," however, indisputably tie the scene to Kansas.
