The article provides significant details regarding a segment of the trip to California, and includes: "The Route from Fayetteville to Fort Smith -- Difficulties of the Ozark Range -- Magnificence of the Mountain Scenery -- The Choctaw Reservation -- Condition of the Negroes Among the Indian Slaveholders... Dreams and Realities, and more." See images for a f handful of photos which provide additional details. A quite interesting report.
