of complete lithograph

An American marine about the Mississippi died two days before the meeting with the commissioners. One of items of business at the meeting was a request by Commodore Perry that the United States buy a piece of land for the burial of the marine. The Commissioners stated the burial should be in Nagasaki. Perry objected and proposed a plot of land on Webster Island which was convenient to where his ships were anchored (the American Anchorage as they called it). The Commissioners declined the request but compromised by allowing the burial in a place adjoining a temple in Yokohoma. Commodore Perry agreed and the marine was buried in Yokohama.

A scouting party had been sent to Webster Island and this lithograph shows the view from the island. Mount Fuji is seen in the background.
