Sir,

I have just embarked the Indians for their new homes, under the direction of Lt Cauby 2nd Infty & -------- Baily U.S.A and regret to state that the condition of the Arkansas River is such at present as to render the time of their arrival at Fort Gibson very doubtful. I have however succeeded in making a contract to deliver them at the point of their destination for the sum specified in the contract (formerly enclosed to you) free of ------ or extra charge for delay. I leave here tommorrow as instructed by the Col ---- for ---- port in Florida.

With much respect Sir
I have the honor to be
