Johnston is forwarding a document he received from the Secretary of War on March 28th (<"28th ultimo">). He had inquired about the Proclamation of the President and its application to settlers that had settled in Indian Country, and the Secretary of War had responded by telling him to take it to General Macomb. Johnston is unsure of how to act, but wants to fulfill his duties. The Wyandot Chiefs have chosen to be under Johnston's Agency. <"McArthur has requested me to settle with the Wyandotts + Senecas for the losses which they have sufferred during the late war that is that part of the Tribe which remains friendly to the US shall attend to that duty in the Month of May">. Leading powers in Ohio worried about possible purchase of Sanduskey Country
