[Senate Doc. 512, Vol. 245, page 956]

WAR DEPARTMENT,
Office Indian Affairs, November 24, 1832

Sir,

Neah Micco and other Creek chiefs have requested the Government to remove certain white persons who have entered their nation and married Indian women, since the conclusion of the treaty, and taken possession of Indian lands.

The department wishes that you would immediately expel all such persons, and particularly the following individuals, whom the chiefs mentioned as especially obnoxious to their nation, viz:

John Sims, Peter Gibson, Little Sims, and John Grace.

You will keep the department advised of your proceedings, in all of which you will be careful to avoid every thing which may unnecessarily excite irritable feelings.

I am, &c.,
Elbert Herring

Jeremiah Anstill, Esq.,
Deputy Marshall
