  • This pamphlet, which has been variously attributed to Anthony Benezet, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Paine, was prepared by Samuel Wharton, as is attested by P.E. Du Simitière in his note-books preserved in the Library of Congress. It relates to a large tract of land within the limits of the present state of West Virginia, granted by the Indians in 1768 to certain traders, including Wharton, and called by them "Indiana." The present pamphlet is an enlargement of one published by Wharton in 1776, under title: View of the title to Indiana. cf. Boston athenæum, Catalogue of the Washington collection, 1897, p. 223-224.
