This is Elder's funny rendering of 12 year old Pocahontas putting herself in harm's way to save John Smith. I'm not even sure whether the entire drawing is Elder's, or maybe he doctored an old print. Either way I think it's an anomaly for Elder. But still, take a close look at some of those Papé drawings—the funny little details, the animated gestures . . . I dunno, I bet Elder could've seen that stuff and eaten it up . . .
