L. Hart is reporting back to Washington, DC in regard to the Miami Tribe. He wrote a simple letter in which he stated that <"to my knowledge"> the Miami Tribe <"remains East">. This proves that even in December of 1846, there are still tribe members occupying land that the settlers are trying to kick them off of. This speaks to the complexity of the treaties written during this time period. It also speaks to the reluctance of the Miami Tribe to leave the land they have inhibited for so long.

Although some families are legally allowed to remain east of the Mississippi River, it is clear that Hart is displeased with the amount of them. He states that since they have purchased the land, they should be able to do with it what they please. Many settlers during this time period have the same feelings, as Hart states in the letter.
