    Seeking the original manuscript of Pawnee Chief Petalesharro's speech

      Seeking the original manuscript of Pawnee Chief Petalesharro's speech as part of the Indian delegation in Washington D.C. during James Monroe's presidency, approx. February 1822. A transcript and additional info about the speech can be found here: https://www.whitehousehistory.org/an-eloquent-visitor-from-the-great-plains An original manuscript may not exist, but perhaps minutes recorded during Petalesharro's meeting can be found, or something similar.  Pawnee could appear as Paunee in some historical sources. Petalesharro's name has also been spelled "Petalesharoo" and "Petalesharo."
