3901. INDIANS, Amalgamation.—[further continued].

I shall rejoice to see the
day when the red men, our neighbors, become
truly one people with us, enjoying all the
rights and privileges we do, and living in peace
and plenty as we do, without any one to make
them afraid, to injure their persons, or to take
their property without being punished for it
according to fixed laws.—
To the Cherokee Chiefs. Washington ed. viii, 214.
