Excerpt from The Indian Question

The long established belief, that the Indian population of the United States is rapidly disappearing, and that the time is not far distant when it will become so insignificant in size, that it will cease to give annoyance to the Govern ment, has scarcely received contradiction until within the past ten years. Among a large portion of our citizens an opinion still widely prevails, that the Indian tribes which formerly roamed over the country east of the Mississippi River, have almost ceased to exist. We'are occasionally informed of the sad fate of the nations of the former North West Territory, or possibly, of the advance in civilization which those small remnants of the Iroquois, and Cherokee nations which still remain with us have reached. The State of Delaware is about to place in his final resting place its only red native, while the summer visitors at Nantucket are shown the grave of the last representative of the original proprietors of the soil of that island.
