First Lines: George Catlin - Letters and Notes on the Manners, Customs, and Condition of the North American Indians

As the following pages have been hastily compiled, at the urgent request of a number of friends, from a series of Letters and Notes written by myself during several years' residence and travel amongst a number of the wildest and most remote tribes of the North American Indians, I have thought it best to make this page the beginning of my book; dispensing with Preface, and even with Dedication, other than that which I hereby make of it, with all my heart, to those who will take the pains to read it.
