I have been Favored with your two Letters of 20th April & 2d May, and am much obliged by your vigilance & attention.

An extract, respecting the removing and supporting the Indians, I have transmitted to the Secretary of War; and desired him to take measures for the relief & comfort of those distressed Wretches.

Any further particulars you can obtain of the Route to Niagara & its practicability, you will please to forward to me as early as possible—the more minute & circumstantial the better.
