Thomas L. McKenney to Governor Lewis Cass, April 26, 1817
|Response to <"letter of the 12 inst.">. Gives an update about purchasing <"Merchandise for the Annuities">. He says that the Wyandot annuities were paid in cash, which was what Cass wanted, even though McKenney had not read Cass' letter at the time to know the instructions.|
McKenney asks Cass to make sure the Wyandots respect the <"Treaty"> which makes money legal payment for them. He also quotes a letter from Mr. Johnston of Piqua in which Johnston requested to receive all of the Piqua's annuities so that he can distribute them and not lead to <"dissatisfaction"> as happened in the past. The letter McKenney received seemed to give instructions about annuities payments and say that tribes now want more money than other forms of payment.
