36], (2 Editorial Approach What follows is intended to help the reader understand the approach I took when preparing Gatewood’s manuscript for publication. I used headers both to separate Gatewood’s text and to allow for a text lead-in to the next section. I hope that the text lead-ins offer information that is helpful in understanding Gatewood’s text that follows. Types of information that are presented include identification of participants, including short biographical sketches (although unfortunately at times this is not always possible), identification and description of locations, dating of events, and background information to give the reader a more complete picture of what leads up to and what is happening in Gatewood’s text.

The control of the Indians and the management of their affairs are fields so fruitful of discussion, that it may be thought little new can be advanced in regard to the subjects. It would seem, however, that the theories presented are more pronounced, the further their authors are removed from their application and from acquaintance with the character of their subjects. Of those who are in proximity to Indian reservations, some who are moved by apprehensions of danger from their depredations, and most who are influenced by greed for what is invaluable of their possessions are convinced that confinement to the most remote and barren localities, with capital punishment for every discontent, is the only means of safety, while that far distant theorist presents a prompt and happy solution in acts of Congress and the donation of a one hundred and sixty acre farm.
