The Commissioner of Indian Affairs (William Medill) corresponds to an agent dealing with annuities to be given to Miami Tribe members. Medill states that a fair annuity would be <"about $3.25">. At the time, Medill was in charge of setting annuities for Native American tribes that were being removed from their land. This number gives us a good range of how much Native Americans, as a whole, were receiving in exchange for moving west of the Mississippi River.
