Hi, Philip!

I don't have exactly what you want, but I will bet I know where you can find

I have a collection of advertisements which used a Native American theme --
it's quite a sight.

Anyhoo, the Saturday Evening Post in the the late 40s carried a bunch of
such ads featuring travel themes. There is one in the 3/29/1947 issue that
featured (the ad did) NYS with the theme -- "Sold for $24.00 and a cartoon
of--you guessed it--the selling of Manhattan.

If you can get someone to search those back issues, I bet you will find what
you need.

Happy Hunting!
