Robert Peebles writes this to the commissioner of Indian Affairs (William Medill) in Washington, DC. He plans to begin removal of Miami Tribe members from <"Fort Wayne in early March">. This is significant because it is shortly after the letter is written. They will be relocated to land west of the Mississippi River. Robert Peebles is the agent in charge of making that happen. He says that annuities will given to many of the tribe members, however, it seems unlikely that they will receive these annuities before they begin their journey due to the lack of time.

Peebles acknowledges that there have been setbacks and disagreements throughout the process of removal. However he hopes for a peaceful ending to this process. He understands the significance of removing the Miami Tribe's land from them and wants it to be a smooth process for both sides.
