In this letter to George W. Martin, Sac and Fox member Walter Battice discusses the 1865 treaty between the Sac and Fox and the U.S. Government, explaing that it "has been complied with to the satisfaction of Government," and that it was "sufficient in dealing with Indians." Battice does state that not all the names on the treaty were spelled correctly. In addition, Battice discusses the change from two principal chiefs for the Sac and Fox tribe to "five who were known as Five Treaty Chiefs."
