In McKenney, T.L. and J. Hall. History of the Indian tribes of North America, v.3 (Philadelphia, 1848), plate opposite p. 53. Also in 1836-1844 and 1838-1844 editions., The story of Pocahontas remains one of the most powerful legends of early colonial America. Pocahontas was a friend to the English settlers, often intervening on their behalf in negotiations with her father, powerful chief Powhatan. She famously saved the life of John Smith moments before his planned execution. She married settler John Rolfe, moved to England in 1616, and died there soon after., "With a shriek of agony, and an impulse of energy and devotion known only to woman's heart, Pocahontas rushes forward, throws herself between the victim and the uplifted arm of the impassioned avenger, beseeching him to spare, for her sake, that doomed life. In what page of her voluminous annals does history record a spectacle of such exquisite beauty? What grace, what feminine tenderness and devotion, what heroic purpose of soul--what self-sacrificing resolution and firmness! And that in a child of twelve years old--and that child an untaught savage of the wilderness, who had never heard the name of Jesus, or of that gospel which teaches to love our enemies, and do good to them that hate us!"--P. 54-55., Other portraits appear in: New York Mirror, v. 18, no. 3 (July 11, 1840), p. 17; The Picture of the baptism of Pocahontas: painted by order of Congress, for the rotundo of the Capitol, by J.G.
