Cass tells Crawford that the goods have run out at Detroit that are required to pay the annuities for Indian Lands. They need $20,000 to pay the full amount of the annuities. This can't be lowered because the British Agency at Malden is giving the Indians much more and because the Indians are not happy with how they lost land in the Treaty of Detroit. Cass has written to the Superintendent of Indian trade. In this letter to Crawford, <"I request articles may be in the proportion specified in the transmission to him">, where 'him' is the superintendent.
