ADDITIONAL INFORMATION


Abstract: »Similarly, Waddell details the fascinating case of John Toby, a Nanticoke Indian who sexually assaulted an eight-year-old Euro-American girl in 1751. He was freed from jail after a short time as part of Pennsylvania's effort to keep an increasingly precarious peace with the Nanticokes.« (Source: Daniel K. Richter and William A.
