of complete lithograph
This lithograph does not relate to any particular discussion in the Narrative. It is in the section concerning delivering the American gifts in Yokohama on March 13, 1854.
The Narrative notes that, concerning the gift giving ceremony, the Japanese asked "Whether the Americans are Friendly" and the response was "Certainly we are". The American's then promptly landed the gifts with a party of several boats and a company of Marines. I can see how the Japanese might misinterpret this "friendly" gesture. Perhaps these were Japanese soldiers were posted nearby to observe the "friendly" American marines bearing gifts.
