In this letter to Colonel Abel C. Pepper, Robert Simerwell tells Pepper that the leaders of the Potawatomis would like to visit before deciding where to relocate because they have heard that "in a short time they will see the whites soldiers marching through their country westward." While Simerwell states that he has assured the Chiefs that such fears are largely unfounded, he explains to Pepper that many of the Chiefs are still reluctant to leave.
