Crawford is replying to the issue of the Prophet wanting to relocate to Tippecanoe. He mentions that they may not be directly hostile to the United States, but more loyal to Britain, but as long as that is uncertain, the band should be kept separate from Indians in US protection. The President approves of the policy Cass has elected to take, and directs that it be continued. If the Indians he used to live among reject his return, it furnishes additional reason to not allow him back to Tippecanoe. The lands in the Michigan Territory are represented as unfit for cultivation.
