Richard W. Cummins to William Clark

Richard W. Cummins to William Clark
Creator: Cummins, Richard W.
Date: January 9, 1832
Richard Cummins, an agent to the Shawnee Indians, wrote this letter to the Superintendent of Indian Affairs, William Clark. Cummins informed Clark that the Kickapoo Indians, under the leadership of Chief Patsachehoy, were prepared to move from Missouri to Indian Territory (present-day Kansas). The Kickapoo had given several reasons for why they supported removal, including the fact that white settlers were encroaching on Kickapoo Territory and selling the Indians large quantities of whiskey.


Richard W. Cummins to William Clark

Richard W. Cummins to William Clark
Creator: Cummins, Richard W.
Date: April 2, 1831
This letter, written by Richard Cummins, an agent to the Shawnee Indians, updated Superintendent of Indian Affairs William Clark on the Delaware Indians who had recently relocated in Kansas (then called Indian Territory). The Delaware had moved to Kansas in the late fall and early winter of the previous year and, due to lack of provisions, were in "a suffering condition." Many of their horses had died and so Cummins gave them some provisions to ease their suffering. The Delaware chiefs wanted the provisions guaranteed them by their treaty with the U. S. government, which they had been told was not yet ratified. They argued that it must have been ratified, because after they signed the treaty white settlers immediately took possession of the Delaware lands east of the Mississippi. In addition, Cummins mentions the Wea Indians (one of the New York Indian tribes), who were also suffering after the harsh winter.


Richard W. Cummins to William Clark

Richard W. Cummins to William Clark
Creator: Cummins, Richard W.
Date: December 3, 1830
Richard Cummins, an agent to the Shawnee Indians, wrote this letter to the Superintendent of Indian Affairs, William Clark. According to Cummins, the Delaware Indians who were relocating to Kansas had just passed his agency in Missouri. The leaders of the Delaware tribe had requested provisions from Cummins' agency, but Cummins had not issued any provisions because the treaty between the Delaware and the U. S. government had not been ratified. The Delaware were sorely lacking in provisions and argued that they had been promised these provisions as soon as they reached Indian Territory (present-day Kansas).
