TitleMendicant Indians
Description"Mendicant Indians." (title from verso of second page) AMs, 2 p. (on paper with embossed seal reading "Croton") Distinctions in rank and wealth exist among the Indians as they do in "civilized" societies. Some have good housing, horses, and clothing, while others have ragged clothes and no horse or rifle. Some fall into poverty through sickness or poor fortune in hunting and trapping. However, in traditional Indian culture, the poor are always aided by the richer and so do not go hungry. Indians also are used to hardship and have simple wants, and so retain their pride even when poor. The accompanying group portrait depicts such individuals.
