Abstract

Among the articles of Indian workmanship in the writer's possession are several hundred fragments of soft dark pottery. All may be well described as dark gray, porous and more or less sandy. Only one specimen is distinctly red. The thickness of the different pieces varies from one-eighth to one-half an inch. To judge by the curvature of the pieces the whole pots must have ranged from a quart to four or five gallons in capacity. Almost all of these potsherds were picked out of the wash along the beds of Pony creek and some smaller runs near Glenwood, Iowa. A few were found in fields or along highways. Most of the boys living near these streams will tell of finding similar fragments, but none of having seen a complete pot.
