In this letter to John A. Haldeman, Thomas A. Hendricks of the General Land Office informs Haldeman that all Native Indian lands that were being vacated in Nebraska and Kansas were "subject to the operation of the Preemption Act" that was passed on September 4, 1841. Hendricks is trying to clarify the complex issue of the transition of the land previously set aside for Native Indians in the recently created Kansas and Nebraska territories.
