Crawford informs Johnston that he should tell the commander of Military Department No. 5 if he needs a military force to remove intruders on the lands of the Indians within his agency who haven't abided by the <"Proclamation of the President of the 12th of December last">. Johnston is an Indian Agent at Picqua, Ohio. There is an excerpt below the letter that is the letter to the commander of Military Dep. No 5, Alexander Macomb. It tells him that any intrusion on land of friendly Indian tribes is violation of laws and direct opposition to policy of the Government. Houses and improvements they made will be destroyed upon their removal.
