Graham Fitch is one of the many agents in the region of Fort Wayne, and in the time period in general, who write to William Medill about immediately removing the tribe. This is due to the negative views that many of them hold against tribes like the Miamis. Fortunatley for the tribes, William Medill is far more level-headed and reasonable. This is likely why he was elected by President Polk as Commissioner of Indian Affairs.

Although the majority of this letter relates to removing the Miamis as soon as possible, he does state that he believes his superiors are <"happy with us">. This is interesting because it may mean that his superiors in Fort Wayne are influencing his view on Indians heavily.
