Treaty at Easton


I just finished conservation on the Treaty at Easton. This manuscript is a "Report of the Committee of the Council appointed to enquire into the complaints of the Indians at the Treaty at Easton the 8th of November 1756." One of the great things about this document is the list of the signatures of the Indian Chiefs. For conservation, I replaced the torn paper wrapper, with a
new sheet of Cave Paper and mended the tears on the edges of the paper.
