DescriptionDedication (copy, handwritten): "Dedication to Honbl. H. P. Biddle Journal of a visit to the Deaf Man's Village" (title from verso of last page) To: H. P. Biddle, Logansport AMsS, 3p. (2 sheets) G.W. revised his journal of his visit to Deaf Man's village in 1839 and has put it in its present form, with illustrations of the Mississinawa. The volume deals with the interesting matter of Frances Slocum, taken captive in 1778 at the age of five and not rediscovered for many years. G.W. dedicates the work to Biddle after their many years of friendship and Biddle's continuous support for G.W.'s work. G.W. has wished to preserve the memory of the Indian culture which is now sadly fading away.
