Roll 2_1: John Armstrong to Lewis Cass, June 11, 1814 and June 18, 1814
|(Continued from Roll 2_0) The President of the United States, James Madison, has appointed Lewis Cass as a commissioner to interact with <the Indian Nations of the West and North> and establish a <treaty of peace and alliance>. The treaty will be signed in Greenville, Ohio. This treaty would establish peace and alliance between the United States and the Native Americans who signed it. By signing this treaty, the Indians would also relinquish some of their land to the United States.|
In a separate letter, Armstrong tells Cass about alterations which were made to the treaty since the last time he wrote to him. The Native Americans would serve as allies to the United States during the War of 1812, and <nothing [would] be said or stipulated with regard to an exchange of lands>. The treaty would consist of two articles: one for <peace and friendship>, and another for <military aid to the United States on the part of the Indians, if required>.
