Comment by Sharon Smith

Does this new photograph collection include an image Paul Kane did in 1847, called "Four Clackamas Indians"? I am working on an interpretive panel project for a non-profit group in Portland, and we would like to use this image on one of the panels. I would of course be happy to pay for usage and for the digital image.

We are on a bit of a tight deadline, so I would much appreciate it if you could get back to me in in the next few days. Thank you.
