    Judge Sul- livan, in his History of Maine, remarks that "the Indian conveyances clearly amounted to nothing more than a contract, made by the chief, on consent of his tribe, that the savages should not make war on the white people for taking lands to a certain extent into possession. In this way we may account for one Sachem's selling the same tract to several different purchasers ; for if the deed was only an agreement upon peace and friendship, there could, in the Indian's view, be no immorality in making the con- tract with as many as might appear to demand it."
