Excerpt from A Further Illustration of the Case of the Seneca Indians in the State of New York: In a Review of a Pamphlet Entitled "an Appeal to the Christian Community, &CThe Joint Committees of the four Yearly Meetings of Friends, of Genesee, New York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, who are charged with the concern of those meetings, for the welfare of the Indian natives, believed it to be their duty to publish a work, entitled "The case of the Seneca Indians in the State of New York, illustrated by facts."We had clearly seen that the interests of these poor Indians, as well as the character of our country, were suffering, not, as we supposed, from any defect of moral feeling in the community, but because their case was almost unknown to our fellow-citizens; and of the few who understood it, some were interested in preventing the truth from being published. We believed if the facts at that time within our knowledge, and illustrative of their case, were generally known, the virtuous part of society, in this cause of justice and humanity, would lift up a voice so loud as to be heard in the legislative halls of our country, where there is a power to prevent further injuries, and to redress past wrongs.The object of our book was what its title imports; to illustrate the case of the persecuted Seneca Indians, by laying facts before the community. To the parties, whether of the white men, or red men, engaged in the cruel work of coercing this suffering people into an exile, so terrible to them, we were strangers; and certainly owed them no ill will. Many of them probably knew little or nothing of the measures pursued in their names. Some of them, we understand, are British capitalists, who perhaps neither know nor care any thing about the Indians, - their sole concern being the profits on the capital invested. Others probably are men, who, honest themselves suppose others are honest, and have taken it for granted that no unfair means would be resorted to in the prosecution of their interests.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
