Work, p. 337. Dumond, p. 58. Larned 1783: "The 'exiles' are the fugitive Indian and negro slaves who fled from the Carolinas and Georgia to Spanish protection in the Floridas. In this connection the author treats of the Seminole Indian wars, the troubles between the Seminoles and the Creeks, and the final flight of the remnant of the 'exiles' to Mexico. The author, being an ardent anti-slavery agitator [and Congressman from Ohio, 1838-1859], writes from that viewpoint." Some light foxing, but a very good copy.
