Biographical / Historical

There are 15 bound volumes of "Indian Records" as well as many unbound sheets. These are the loose sheets. It seems they were being compiled in order to create a set of books about First Nations peoples. They contain handwritten copies of letters, speeches, addresses, extracts, treaties, reports, legislation, minutes, journals, etc. having to do with First Nations peoples and PYM Indian Committee. They apparently were created by Joseph S. Elkinton with the help of Rebecca Sears, his secretary [and include copies of his and his father's papers].
