Seminole Agency, July 27, '61. so,
Dear Sir : The Seminoles are now th
in council, considering a draft of a pa
treaty Capt. Pike submitted to them. de
We shall have little or no trouble in tri
making a treaty with them. '1The oi
Creeks ratified their treaty lyv a tuaon- fit
imous vote in their Counicil, every to
Town being represented. Their reg- tit
iment will be ready in a few days, w
and probably half a dozen companies w
The Seminoles are, I helieve, all hi
right. Two or three persons cundea he
vored to prevent a treaty being made si
by the Creeks. Hepothleyeholo andl a
Bon. Marshall, have done, all in their se
power to keep them neutral, acting er
under the influence and advice of tr
John Ross. It was their right, being m
Creeks, to act as their judgnient and te
sense of right dictated. But some th
persons from abroad. actuated lIv dif- 10
terent motiives; One lv regard tfr his th
property in the Cherokee country ;
another by his interest in certain tl
claims against the government : a
third, by a desire to W1, with a dele
gation to Itichnond, and be a great
while making a treaty there. and oth
ers by other motives equally as sel
fish and ignoble, also intertired,. with fe
little credit, and less profit to them- 1,
It ought to be known, that the .ii
Creeks, before entering upon the con- ne
sideration of the treaty, voted by a
unaninous vote of the Council, to gi f
