Sinclair writes to Medill that the emigration Contractor <called on [Sinclair] this morning and reports that he has been engaged in notifying the Indians to collect at his {}, but they uniformly say to him that their chief told them to do nothing toward their emigration until they should hear from him--that they are ready to commence whenever the chief says he is ready.> The letter makes it seem like the Chief is off on a mission of sorts, and the tribe refuses to make any decisions while he is absent. Sinclair also writes that the Contractor proposes to do something for <fifty dollars a head>.
