Locklear, A. S.  “A Protest.  The Indians of Robeson Merely Want Their Original Name and Are Not ‘Pursuing a Shadow’.”  Robesonian 7 (8?) Feb. 1910: 8.

Annotation: 

Lengthy letter.  Croatans do not expect to get millions, as the News and Observer spoke of.  They “are only trying to fix [their] prestige among the Indian tribes of the United States.”  McMillan and the BAE agree that Croatans are a branch of the Cherokees.  Croatans fought with Whites against the Tuscaroras in 1713.
