Stickney writes to Cass to inform him that the Potawatomies spoke up last time they were there to get their annuities and said that if they had to go all the way to Detroit to get their annuities, it would be very difficult. The Potawatomies maintain that the small annuity they would receive at Detroit would not be worth the travel. Stickney would like Cass to forward the portion of the annuities for the Potawatomies to Fort Wayne. The British initially tried to convince Indians to come join them and they will be given goods, but the Indians eventually stopped coming until the British spoke more favorably of the United States.
