(Continued from Roll 2_21) Cass believes that the British are <taking advantage of [the United States'] errors> made regarding their relationship with "hostile" tribes. Cass recounts an event that took place in which three Indians at Detroit were arrested <upon some unfounded suspicions> and how he himself let them go and offered them presents to make up for it. Cass requests weapons, ammunition, and armed guards to be sent his way. Cass writes that his current situation in Detroit is <very unpleasant and sometimes very unsafe>, as he is surrounded by <drunken lawless Indians, doubtful friends, and secret enemies, without any physical force at my disposal>.
