William Allen, Picturesque views on the river Niger, sketched during Lander's last visit in 1832-33, by Commander William Allen (London, 1840), facing p. 14. (Copy in Library of Congress, Rare Book/Special Collections)

Caption, "Mount Patteh from Bangadeh"; domestic scene by riverside, conical thatched houses, canoes on river, woman with mortar and pestle, other household utensils. Neither Mt. Patteh nor Bangadeh could be precisely identified, but both were probably in central Nigeria, not far from the Niger-Benue confluence.
