Our contributor thinks this leather bound sketchbook might outline significant US history. It includes drawings of what look like Southwest landscapes and references to a J.R. Bartlett. Could that be the John Russell Bartlett who the US Government hired as an early surveyor of the Southwest? Eduardo Pagan follows the journey to its colorful conclusion.
