Johnston is overjoyed at the election of John Quincy Adams as president of the United States. Johnston has met with the Methodist Missionary Society in Philadelphia to discuss the Wyandot Mission, and there may be financial assistance forthcoming. On another topic -- Johnston reports discussion concerning a possible move of Indians to the west. Johnston sees it as best for the welfare and happiness of the Indians, but knows that the move, if authorized by the U.S. Congress, will be very painful for the Wyandots. He reports that Mr. Hudson, one of the white murderers (Fall Creek Massacre), has been hanged. He would like Finley to let the Wyandots know that justice is being served. Abstract Number - 721
