This letter does not involve the mention of one single person but it does mention a very important group of departments. The Secretary of War and the Secretary of treasury have issued $20,725 into the account of the Indian Agent Office it seems. The reasons for transmitting the money over was for paying the agents their salaries as well as some other costs (cannot read them). This is a very large sum of money at the time and it is being invested by some of the highest positions in the US to the Indian Agency Office. Indians at the time were a very big deal to the US government and I believe that this sum shows that because they are investing a ton of money in their agents for trade and civilizing.
