9124. WHISKY, Sale to Indians.—[continued].

We have taken measures
to prevent spirituous liquors being carried into
your country, and we sincerely rejoice at this
proof of your wisdom. Instead of spending
the produce of your hunting in purchasing this
pernicious drink, which produces poverty, broils
and murders, it will be now employed in procuring
food and clothing for your families, and
increasing instead of diminishing your numbers.—
Address to Miamis and Delawares. Washington ed. viii, 191.
