Prohibition on African-Choctaw Inter-marriage

While going through a series of old letters at the National Archives in Washington DC an unusual document appeared in the collection of "Letters Received" in Record Group 48. The records form Entry 712 Box 48 contained a number of appeals and policies pertaining to the status of Choctaw & Chickasaw Freedmen. Among the items was one interesting document from the Executive Office of the Choctaw Nation in 1885.
