Field has very kind words for this study, which initially appeared in THE HISTORICAL MAGAZINE and was printed here in a small edition for private circulation among friends of the author and publisher. Brinton examines the "national legend" of the Creek Indians, elucidating the symbolism in the story and defining a number of words and phrases. FIELD 188. PILLING, PROOF-SHEETS 493.
