Description: Letter discussing grave robbing of Indigenous ancestors' remains. Regarding skull from Fort Hill, East Haven, Connecticut, tribe of the Quinnipiacks, a branch of the Mohekaneews or Mohicans. Hopes to get more. Those which a farmer has turned up probably those of an English settler; but to avoid over-generalizing, Morton must have more. Forwarded by Benjamin Silliman.
