From the Colton Storm catalogue: "Made, in 1845, when war between England and the United States over the Oregon boundary seemed imminent, this trip by Capt. Warre across the northern Rockies to Puget Sound must have had some military purpose. However, any report of that nature became waste-paper on his return to London, as an amicable adjustment had then been made; but a better fate attended the views he had painted and were here magnificently reproduced; they remain the only western color plates comparable in beauty to those by Bodmer accompanying Maximilian's 'Travels'. Published at London in 1848."
