Summary
This volume is a collection of several different kinds of important historical documents published by the Michigan Pioneer and Historical Society. This volume opens with the President of the Society's address along with reports, memorials, personal reminiscences, and local history papers delivered at the 1887 annual meeting. Some of these papers deal with the Ordinance of 1787, early exploration of Lake Superior and life in and around its copper mines, Fort Gratiot, and the Calhoun and Kalamazoo County legal communities. The second half of the volume is devoted to the Haldimand Papers, continuing the series of publications from them that began in Volumes 9 and 10. The Haldimand Papers consist chiefly of the correspondence of frontier-based British officers with each other and their commanding officer, General Frederick Haldimand, at Quebec. They were culled from Canadian archives in Ottawa by the Society's representative, B.W. Shoemaker, to illuminate British influence and activities in the Great Lakes region during the era of the American Revolution and its aftermath. Documents here emphasize European, Native American, and American relations from 1782-1790 and provide information about Native American Councils and transactions, civil as well as military life, corn supplies, inventories, Native American oratory and a speech to Congress (1786), medicine, treaties, and military intelligence. There are extensive sections dealing with the state of trade (as reported by Montreal merchants), and with the proceedings of a Court of Inquiry investigating complaints by traders of Michilimackinac about the conduct of an employee of the Indian Department and his interpreter. A general index and an index of names appear at the end of the volume.
