Remarks:
On August 19, 1993, Ruth Koerner Oliver informed me that in her opinion the correct title for this painting is "Trail Herd to Abilene." She said that the title "Trail Herd to Wyoming" was given to this piece by Harold McCracken when he acquired it for the Whitney Gallery of Western Art. [8/24/93 Frances B. Clymer.]
