Excerpt from Early Trade and Travel in the Lower Mississippi Valley
The predominating in¿uence of the English over the native population in this region before 1755 was due mainly to the activity of the trader, but it was perhaps enhanced by the lack of land-hungry Anglo - Sax... on pio neers. It should be borne in mind, however, that the pres ence of the trader among the aborigines was by no means an unmixed blessing; in fact, he was everywhere the source of debauching and demoralizing in¿uence. The Indian acquired from him all the vices and none of the virtues of the white man, and sufferedas much injury from the pampering of the trafficker as he did later from the crowding of the settler.
