Cass has had an interview with <"Walk in the Water">, principal chief of the Wyandots. The Wyandots do not want to travel to Miami land to receive their annuities, as the nearest Wyandot village to Picqua (where they are due to collect their annuities from Johnston) is 40 miles, and it is only 10 families there. Treaty of Fort Industry (Walk in the Water calls it Treaty of Swan Creek) said $400 to be paid at Detroit to the Wyandot. From main settlement, the Wyandot would have to travel 200 miles to collect their annuities, Cass wants to change that. Much cheaper to travel the usual route, up the Alleghany. Cass recommends that the Wyandot goods be forwarded to Detroit instead of Picqua.
