Ewing writes a long letter to Medill back in Washington, DC. Ewing stresses the need for an <"efficient"> removal of the Miami Tribe. He says this they arrived in 1845 and have already given over $500 in annuities to have the natives removed. This is a lot of money at the time, and Ewing is worried that not removing the tribe as soon as possible will be detrimental. Ewing states that, although he does not want to, using physical force to remove them may be the best option at this point.

Ewing does show some sympathy for the tribe despite potentially calling for a physical removal. However, later in the letter he does say, <"I do not now write to defend these men">. This proves that Ewing and other men like him do not care much for the Natives in the area. They care much more about settling on the land and getting Indians off it. This stems from the stigma that Native Americans are uncivilized.
