Description: Letter to Ely S. Parker, from a superintendent of the Thomas Indian School writing at the suggestion of a Mr. Thompson for confirmation of an Iroquois tradition concerning Logan, a Cayuga chief, to whose memory it is proposed to erect a monument near his birthplace. Brantz Mayer, President of the Maryland Historical Society, "in an effort to redeem the character of the Cresap family, with which he has connections," has contradicted facts of Logan's life long held true. [See #1766 for reply.]
