Signed, "F. Knickerbocker 4-6 '40" in lower right on recto; Inscribed, "Back in 1940 while visiting some Otoe friends of mine I painted this picture. They had a Peyote meeting and I attended. Then while waiting for our noon meal I sketched what I saw and painted it later. They butchered and made ready a lot of corn as the main dishes. After dawn had come and we were out of the tepee they took it down and we eat under the arbor. Mr. & Mrs. Jim Pettit were the hosts. Being one fourth Otoe myself - I enjoyed this very much." on verso.
