The Six Nations are to be removed from New York to the <"Western Country">. The US does not want the Indians removed to anywhere that may impede communication; however, the writer is aware that the Indians do not seem to want to move west of the Mississippi. He recommends the Southwest corner of Ohio or northern Indiana are good spots for them. However he says this must be planned at a general Council, when representatives of all parties are present. The writer fears that he cannot place a time for this council because a treaty with the Wyandots may interfere with the council. However, he feels the place should be Fort Wayne. The writers wants chiefs with power to make decisions present, and thinks that supplying those chiefs presents might be helpful for negotiations.
