as hostages, (of the same tribe of Bowers murderer), until he the murderer is delivered" saying "if the guilty one is not found, the hostages will be hanged"-. I have written to forbid it, - and will go in person next week, as soon as I can complete my first qrs returns.

I am now greatly puzzled to know what action to take for [illegible line] The supervisor says "the troops that [illegible] are diseasing all the Indians" and that he "is heartily sick of them."

Now [illegible], Had I not better try & purchase their crops & part of their stock, and agree to pay them a certain rent until Congress appropriates to pay for their improvements and in this way get clear of both the settlers and troops.

If any other place could be had, to such I would at once remove the Indians but this I cannot find any where on U.S. lands.

Hopeing to be instructed in this matter very soon, I am very truly
