This is considered the most complete and exhaustive report of the condition, numbers, names, territory, and general affairs of the Indians ever made. It gives us the details of almost every particular which we could desire, relating to the accessible tribes, in the territory of the United States, as they existed in 1820. They are the result of the labors of a humane and
learned man, who personally visited, and investigated the affairs of many of the tribes mentioned. The most elaborate tables accompany the work, and show a vast amount of statistical information regarding the Indians within the jurisdiction of the government. On page 361 commences " A Statistical Table Of All The Indian Tribes In The United States, With Their Names, Number
Of Souls In Each Tribe, Residence, And References To The Page And Map." This and similar tables cover thirty-seven pages, and give the above designated information, regarding two hundred and fifty-nine tribes, numbering 471,146 individuals. On pages 359 and 360, is a translation of the Nineteenth Psalm, into the Mohegan Language, with the English version in parallel columns. Morse was called " Father of American Geography," His is an official report , which contains historically valuable material On the Indians. These documents support the idea of forced removal of all Indians to lands west of the Mississippi. Has a description of early Chicago.
