Fort Gibson
Decr 1st 1841

Sir

Accompanying I send a muster roll of a party of Florida Indians that arrived at this port on the 12th Nov.

We had great difficulty in getting them over the river. But through the influence of Micanopy and other old settlers, they ageed to move to the Deep Fork.  But the day after they crossed the river the present cold spell of weather overtook us, and they refused to go any farther and they are now in camp opposite the mouth of Grand River. They are well affected and I have no doubt they will move farther as soon as the weather moderates.

We should like to hear from you soon, and hope you will be up soon to see us.

Your most respectfully
Geo W Clarke
