‡ This sum of $35.75 is not included in the sum of $98.25, paid this town in May 1833, the absentees having ran away previously; although, since the treaty, their portionment went to increase the general fund, and was distributed among all towns.  The sum of $16.25, due those gone to the Seminole nation, is included in the $98.25, those Indians having gone away since the payment, & c.  Blunt's Indians, who have gone to the Creek nation, have all gone since the annuity; and their portion is, therefore, included in the amount paid his town. The difference in population (264) at time of treaty, and the aggregate of the number now ready to go away, dead since treaty, ran away, & c., is owing to the birth of children ad interim, & c.; 256 is the number stipulated in the treaty; but I presume it was not enough, or the difference is occasioned the same way, & c., or both.
