McClelland, Robert and Others  
Communications from The Secretary of the Interior and The Commissioner of Indian Affairs to the Chairman of the Committee on Indian Affairs of the Senate. [Executive Document No. 34, 33d Congress, 1st Session]

Publisher: U.S. Department of the Interior Washington D.C. 1854.
A series of letters, primarily from Geo. W. Manypenny and Isaac L. Stevens, regarding territorial Indians (including Oregon, Washington, and New Mexico territories). The first letter from Manypenny (Feb 6, 1954) sets the tone: "Sir: I have the honor to state that, in my opinion, an enlightened forecast indicates that the present is a favorable time to institute and establish definite relations of amity with the wild tribes of Indians located within the territory of the United States, and with which such definite relations do not now exist. With many of the tribes in Oregon and Washington Territories, it appears to be absolutely necessary to speedily conclude treaties for the extinguishment of their claim to the lands now or recently occupied by them."…and so forth. The letters state types of trade goods and monetary value estimated to be necessary, and one letter suggests site for "relocation" with caveats on one that it had not yet been adequately explored for possible valuable mineral resources. Evidence suggests that this report was removed from a larger compilation, with sewing holes at the spine edge. Otherwise clean and complete. 4997 AM IND STUDIES First Edition Good (disbound) 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Indian Studies

Publisher: Montpelier: E. P. Walton, Printer. 1858.
15 p. After general sermonizing on moral fiber, Thomas turns (p. 12) to the Indians: "The aborigines of this country are not only neglected, but much abused" (four paragraphs) and (p. 13) "But while the condition of the Indian race may be a reproach to us as a nation, the condition of the African race must be regarded as a still greater reproach. American slavery, I am free to say, does violence to the spirit of the age, is opposed to our natural sense of justice, and contravenes some of the plainest precepts of Christianity."
