Johnston discusses the Betty Wright case and hopes it can be settled soon. He also discusses the John Shaw situation. Johnston will do what he can to have Shaw sent as sub-agent any other place than Upper Sandusky, knowing how Finley feels about him. Johnston talks about Indian removal at length, telling Finley that the Indians must all move west sooner or later. "The Wyandots can form no exception to the rule. They may remain longer than the others, but they must go too." Johnston continues to believe that removal west is in the best interest of the Indians. Abstract Number - 742
