Excerpt from An Historical Sketch of Gy-Ant-Wa-Chia the Cornplanter: And of the Six Nations of Indians

A joint resolution of the Legislature of Pennsylvania was passed on the 7th day of March, 1867, inviting Hon. James Ross Snowden to deliver, in the Hall of the House of Representatives, his historical address on Cornplanter, and the Six Nations of Indians.

Pursuant to this resolution, on the 14th of March, the members of both Houses, and a number of citizens, being convened, Hon. John P. Glass, Speaker of the House of Representatives, was called to the chair; and Geo. W. Hamersly, Esq., Clerk of the Senate, A. W. Benedict, Esq., Clerk of the House of Representatives, and John A. Smull, Esq., Resident Clerk of the House of Representatives, were appointed Secretaries.

Mr. Snowden was introduced to the audience by Mr. Speaker Glass, with some appropriate remarks.

Previous to the delivery of the historical sketch, Mr. Snowden made the following introductory remarks:

At the last session of the Legislature a joint resolution was adopted, appropriating a sum of money for the erection of a monument to the memory of Cornplanter, the celebrated Chief of the Seneca Nation of Indians. The same resolution placed the subject in charge of the Hon. Samuel P. Johnson, President Judge of the Sixth Judicial District. Under his direction, an appropriate monument was prepared and placed in position over the grave of the Chief, at Jennesadaga, (Cornplanter's village,) in the county of Warren, on the Allegheny river, fifteen miles above the borough of Warren. I was selected, by Judge Johnson, to deliver an address upon the occasion. This duty I performed.
