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.
