Donor Notes: This was famous expose of the cruelties of the Arana Co.'s cruelties to the Indians of the Putumayo & Caquetá Rivers. The indigenous people were slave-labor rubber tree sap gatherers. Sir Roger Casamente, the Anglo-Irish investigator would find the allegations of this pamphlet and other witnesses all too true, when he investigated on the scene later. - J.L.H.
