    HORACE P. JONES AT MOW-WAYS AND PARRA-O-COOM COMANCHE CAMP, 1873. Well-known scout and interpreter Horace Pope Jones is seen here at the Cache Creek, Oklahoma camp of aggressive Comanche leaders Parra-o-Coom (Quahadi band) and Mow-Ways (Kotsoteka band). The photographer of this large cabinet card is unknown. Joining Jones on horseback are the Evans brothers, local ranchers. In the foreground, a group of Indian children pose together; in the background and far distance are many teepees, revealing how very large this combined camp was. During the winter of 1872-73, Parra-o-coom camped near the Wichita Agency at Fort Sill, and this was probably the only peaceful contact he ever had with the white man. The following year, he resumed his violent raids on white settlers. Image measures approximately 7.5" x 4.75" and is affixed to a slightly larger mount. Photo shows minor paper loss at lower left and upper right corners; moderate damage to sections of mount edge/corners. Despite the damage, this is an important and desirable piece worthy of any Western Americana collection.
