In this letter to Reverend S.M. Cane, Robert Simerwell explains that he has just visited a number of Potawatomis encamped along the Wabash River in perparation for a move west of the Mississippi River as soon as the U.S. Government "will provide means." Simerwell states that the Potawatomis are ready to start their journey, but must depend on the U.S. Government for protection because they are fearful of the possibility of being harmed by "Indians who delight in spilling blood."
