Four salted paper prints made during the Raynolds expedition of 1859-1860 depicting Laramie Hills with tipis in the foreground; a fort, possibly Fort Union; two sets of group portraits of Arapahos, one of them of Arapaho chiefs Eagle Head, Split-nose, Little Owl, and Friday. There are 17 drawings by Hutton, 11 of them of western views, most probably made during the Raynolds expedition, depicting Fort Sarpy on the Yellowstone; Eagle Creek on the upper Missouri River; the valley of Wind River; Red Canon Creek, Big Horn Mountains; and Lodge Pole Peak and Crow Peak in the Black Hills. There are nine other drawings present, six by three other identified artists: R. W. Ingle, W. Taylor, Jr., and William Rich Hutton, James' brother. The drawing by William Rich Hutton is a view of San Francisco. Accompanied by a document made out to Miss Ellen S. Hutton in thanks for her work as church organist.
