Graham mentions an illegal trader by the name of Lamerondier, who came from Mackanaw before an Agent had arrived there, and didn't know how to apply for a license to trade, and reported himself to Graham. Graham then calls for Cass to draw <"an imaginary line of separation between this agency and that of Chicago">. Graham also received an express from Judge Parke (Indian Agent of Vincennes) calling a general council on 24th May about protests by the Miamies and Weaws over purchased land by General Harrison in 1809. They apparently oppose the validity of the purchase by claiming there was too much force used at the sale. Graham has been unable to get any information about annuities for past and present year. Enemy of the last war <"Moran"> visited and informed Graham that Indians think they would not have lost land if they hadn't involved in war. He urges the tribes to go to Malden to collect compensation from "Mother" (Britain), but the more he urges, the more reluctant they are.
