of complete lithograph
In early March, 1854, a marine aboard the Mississippi died. After negotiations with the Commissioners it was arranged that he would be buried in Yokohama. The funeral took place on March 9. The place of burial was near a Japanese place of internment. A Protestant service was held. When the burial was completed, a Buddhist priest also conducted funeral ceremonies.
This lithograph is in this section of the Narrative. Perhaps this picture records preparation for the funeral as you see a casket in the right foreground.
The titles/lettering read:
