Stickney also notes a Mr. [Daniel] Curtis giving the natives a difficult time, making Stickney's job more difficult. This could be in reference to the Siege of Fort Wayne in the War of 1812, when a Lt. Daniel Curtis helped Stickney. He notes that Mr. Curtis has been "permitted" against his will and the Indian department. Stickney goes on to note that to his knowledge, Curtis had not disrupted the Indians since his return, nor has he done anything. Stickney continues with a story of Curtis, with the assist of two others, going into the smith of the Indian department and stealing certain tools that would require assistance from Cincinnati or some distant place to replace. Curtis took them as they were used in the War of 1812, and he had right to them, despite the fact the Stickney notes the ownership had never been disputed before. Stickney then notes that this is not the worst offense. A Major Whistler, father in law to Daniel Curtis, took laborers from building Stickney's house. Stickney was also given a waiter[butler], who was also taken by Whistler.
