Your Government knows ami so doe th
Government of the United States know wut
lands lie west of the Arkansas river to v!nc;i
the Cherokee Nation make any chum. Thf re
can be no misunderstanding on th:it ivr..rt
Your Government knows and so does th
Government of the United States know ju
how much money has been heretofore p:rd oi
account of lands tn the outlet west f tfc" Ar
kansas river. There can be no possib e ic w -derstanding
on that point. The act of Conr
and the instructions of this Comrniv-on. wh: h
have been outlined in a former letter, show '
actly the extent of the authority of ihw C m
mission. So there can be no misumlcr-.t:inu.-.4
otr that point.
We note your observations upon the historv
of the claim, title or interest of th- Cherol;,
Nation in or to said lands, but we mo-:t rc-pvi t
fully call your attention to the fact that th-i-effects
do not raise the question of the off- r .r
11.25 per acre whether the title, clr.im r
interest is Kood. bad or indifferent. The i sec
tion as to what if any title the Chcrohe- Na
tion has tothee lands would come ui f.r I -.-

only, it waives any and all adrantaee it m:i;!it

Nation for this occasion advantage of ary
trouble or question which may exist in th na
ture of their title, claim or interest in or to n e
lands of the Poncas, Pawnees, Sez I'ercvs ami
Otoes and Missouns. The object or the Unite-l
States in including tho.se lands in its o:It w.i
to clear away any possible claim of title o: the
part or tho Cherokees to those 1-uids now or
hereafter and to make the titles of the tribes :.
their land perfect beyond question end
give to the Cherokee Nation the advanta?
receiving 51.25 per acre for such lan-'s. V
Ing for this occasion the right of the U
States to settle for these lands at the app:
mereoi nereioiore made oy tne reluent
for the remainder of the Outlet which b
same treaty and appraisal the Government has
the right to settle friendly Indians upon: th
reason for including these lands in the o2 r
was so apparent that we did not think and do
not think now any explanation was necessary.
We do not see how any tpUunderstandinjj is
possible on that point.
We also note your observation as to tho
necessity ot a change in certain provisions of
your Constitution dating from 139 befr.-s the
Cherokee Nation can take effective action upon
this offer. This proposition is a surprise to n.
The treaties since 1K59 make transfer of land in
Kansas nnd lands in this Territorv. and nro-
vide for transfer by the National Council of
other Cherokee lands in Arkansas and States
east of the Mississippi. The validity or this
transfer has never been questioned by the
Cherokee Nation and it has received and re
tained the purchase money therefor without
qnestion. The transfer under the present offer
would, we think, be as valid as thoe were, and
tho United States will be entirely satisfied
with a transfer confirmed by the National
It will be the duty of the Commission and
will give the members thercor pleasure to re
turn to Tahlequah when the National Council
meets ia November next and be ready to com
plete a treaty embodying this offer in case- the
offer is accepted bv that body. The Commis
sion will leave Tahlequah to-morrow moraii.g
to pursue its labors in other parts or the Terri
tory. Its address will be for soms time in care
of Dr. Bennett, the Indian agent.
Returning our thanks for the hospitable en
tertainment which has served to run tr cr
