      Scarce contemporary painting of the reception held for Commodore Perry and his officers on February 10th, 1854 shortly before the signing of the Treaty of Kanagawa on March 31st. Many among the legion of Americans do not hide their apprehensiveness to attempt the fine-looking raw fish presentations before them.
