the Senate by the President*
OFFICE OF, tneiAM T RaDE.
Georgetown, March 28, 1822.
To the Honorable the President of the
Senate of the United Statu: —
Sir. I have the honor‘respectfully to
represent that insinuations having been
made in the debate on the bill now
before the Senate, on Indian affairs*
implicating the integrity with which I
have fulfilled the duties of Superintend
dent of Indian Trade; and feeling the
value of my reputatiou to be' enhanced,
by the circumstance of its constituting
my only inheritance; and conscious of
I having executed the duties ef my office
with the utmost zeal and fidelity, and
! claiming the right of an American—I
do therefore respectfally solicit that a
committee be appointed, with instruct
tions to make such examinations into
the manner in which I have discharged
the duties of the trust with which I
have been honored, as it may be consid*
ered proper to order.
I have the honor to be, sir, with
great respect, your most obedient scr*

THOMAS L. M’KENNY,
Superintendant of Indian Trade.
The letter was readf
The report of tfce Committee on
Public lands, unfavorable to the pe
tition of William C. Jones, waa taken
up and concurred if).
The senate resumed, in committee of
the whole, Mr Dickerson in the chair*
the bill to discontinue the Indian trade
system, and to provide for opening the
trade to iudividuals under certain reg
ulations.
Mr. Benton withdrew the motion
which he made yesterday to reeommit
the bill with certain instructions; and,
in lieu thereof, moved to strike out alt
those sections which proposed to estab
lish a system of private trade, by li
cense, under the management of a prin
cipal superintendent to reside at the
seat of government, and assistant su
perintendent to reside at St, Louis, in
Missouri. The effect of this motion
was to limit the present bill to a simple
abolition and settlement of the concerns
of the present factory system.
The question was taken on this mo
tion without debate or objection, and
carried, and,
The bill, &• amended, was ordered
to be engrossed and read a third time.
The Senate then, according to the
order of the day, icok up in committee
of the'whoie, Mr. Otis in the chair, the
amendments reported by the committee
on Public Lauds, in pursuance of in
structions of the Senate, to the bill con
firming the title of the Marquis de MaS
son Rouge. The amendments embra
ced a substitute for the original bill,
containing several sections, and autho
rising the claimants, at any time with*
in two years, to institute a suit against
the United States in the nature of a pe
tition of right, in the courts of the
United States, to try the validity of said
title.
Mr Eaton moved, in pursuance of direr
tions fmm the committee of Public Lande
to add a hearing of their case to the claim
of Gabriel and william Winter heretofore
often before Congress, ^wbo claim, under
a Spanish grant, a tract ot land of 1000
