TREATY WITH SAC AND FOX INDIANS Scarce printed treaty, "Treaty Between the United States and the Sac and Fox Indians", 8pp. legal folio, Washington, May 18, 1854, signed in type by Franklin Pierce, William L. Marcy, and five Sac and Fox Indian delegates. In the treaty, the Indians agree to cede to the U.S. all lands granted to them under the Sept. 17, 1836 treaty, reserving 32,000 acres for their own reservation, in exchange for the sum of $48,000 plus a tract of 160 acres for a Presbyterian church and $57,000 to be invested for the good of the Indians, to be spent at the President's discretion. The treaty further notes: "...All roads and highways...shall have right of way through the reservation...The Indians promise to use their best efforts to prevent the introduction and use of ardent spirits [alcohol] in their country...commit no depredation or wrong upon either Indians or citizens...". Slightly dampstained in places, with a marginal chip to one page, still very good.
Estimate $ 200-300
