Ask for Cass' aid in the receipt of their money owed according to the Sevan Creek and Detroit Treaties. They think that the amounts due to them from these treaties is three thousand five hundred dollars. They received this amount last summer. Father M. Johnston deny of money from 1812-1816 at one thousand a year means that they are owed seven thousand dollars of which they have only received three thousand five hundred. |
They state that when Stickney was on his way to Washington City, they asked him if he knew the reason behind the restriction of the annuities. Stickney states that he was in charge but had no control over their annuities. He assured them that their money was whole.
