Laws and treaties pertaining to America Indians
An accurate compilation of the treaties, laws, Executive orders, and other matters relating to Indian affairs, from the organization of the Government, had been needed for many years, and its necessity had been repeatedly emphasized by the Commissioner of Indian Affairs in his annual reports to Congress. This two-volume work was undertaken by the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs in pursuance of the recommendation of the Commissioner and to meet the pressing need that the committee found for a correct compilation, convenient in form and properly indexed, so that any law, treaty, or order could readily be found. Much difficulty and delay preceded the finding of the text of Indian treaties, orders, laws, and subsequent amendments, in the scattered form in which they had only been obtainable.
