About this Item

8vo. 34 pages. 20th-century half calf, marbled boards, by Brentano's (dried and worn). PRESUMED FIRST EDITION (another was printed in Providence in the same year, but this has been deemed earlier). A pamphlet prepared by the John D. Lang and Samuel Taylor, Jr. following their journey West in 1842 as part of a Quaker mission to explore the situation with Native American tribes after the Indian Removal Act of 1830, and the ensuing Trail of Tears . "The situation of the numerous Tribes of Indians now located West of the Mississippi River, having long claimed the attention of the Society of Friends, and increasingly so since their removal from their former homes, the Yearly Meetings of New England and New York, in the year 1837, entered into a correspondence upon the subject, to ascertain in what way the efforts of Friends might be directed to their benefit." Their findings were presented at the yearly meeting and this pamphlet prints their record. There are sections on the Winnebago, Kickapoo, Kansas, Osage, Cherokee, and Choctaw.
