THE INDIANS

OF

NORTH AMERICA:

WITH

REMARKS ON THE

ATTEMPTS MADE TO CONVERT AND CIVILIZE THEM.

“ Savages we call them, because their manners differ from ours, which we think the
perfection of civility : they think the same of theirs. Perhaps, if we would examine
the manners of different nations with impartiality, we should find no people so rude as
to be without any rules of politeness ; nor any so polite as not to have some remains of
rudeness.”-Dr. Franklin's Essay on the North American Savages.

BY JOHN HALKETT, Esq.
