Robert Simerwell to Colonel Abel C. Pepper

Robert Simerwell to Colonel Abel C. Pepper
Creator: Simerwell, Robert, 1786-1868
Date: April 18, 1833
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.


Robert Simerwell to Reverend Samuel Bolles

Robert Simerwell to Reverend Samuel Bolles
Creator: Simerwell, Robert, 1786-1868
Date: June 28, 1833
In this letter to Reverend Samuel Bolles, Robert Simerwell reports that he has been waiting several weeks for the party of emigrating Potawatomies to arrive at Logansport, Indiana, where they were slated to gather before heading West. Simerwell states that he has two wagons with him for the journey, and that the Potawatomies have requested that his family be allowed to accompany him at the U.S. Government's expense. However, Simerwell states that he has received no word on the subject, and that he presumes that the U.S. Government is "careless about rendering us any aid."
