|Written in Fort Wayne on December 30th, 1847. The undersigned subcontract under Thomas Dowling for the removal for one year of the Miami Indians from that state of Indiana. First, they request that no part of the commissary for the Indians be taken from them. This is regarding the officer that was given authority and questioning his character. |
Second, the removal of the Indians and ill advised people, though few in numbers, has been a very tedious affair.
The undersigned subcontracts have shared us no harm to accomplish it and carry on! Third, a brief statement with regards to the way and manner this was created.
