Cass says he has heard from a Mr. Ogden that the Indians would like to relocate to a different part of the country so that they <"may live in a manner congenital with your habits and modes of life">. Cass says that he knows of one of their councils, but that if they are willing to go through the courts, and the courts approve to an agreed upon location, he will do his best to help them relocate. He recommends meeting in Fort Wayne since it is close for the Miamis and Potawatomies (in whose land they must be willing to relocate). He says it is necessary a US agent must be present at the next meeting in order to help if any objections come up, and that he must be well informed of them.
