(Continued from Roll 2_20) The Wyandotts, Delawares, Senecas, and Shawnees are <firmly attached> to the United States - in other words, they are allied. The Miamis and most of the Potawatomies can also <be depended on>. However, the Ottawas and the Ojibwes are <hostile> toward the United States. A lot of Indian tribes near Lake Superior and the Mississippi River are <under the immediate influence and control of the British traders and agents>. The British provide the Indians with presents to win them over, and they also control Michillimackinac. There are plans to blockade an island in Lake Huron in order to stop the British from gaining control of it. Cass thinks that an increased naval presence should be established in the area as well.
