Local preacher James Montgomery was appointed by the U.S. government in 1819 as sub-agent to the Seneca Indians in Lower Sandusky (Fremont area). Prior to this assignment he had served as a missionary alongside John Stewart at the Wyandot Mission in Upper Sandusky. He reports that the Mohawk Indians in Lower Sandusky were promised a school which never materialized. The Indians are sorely disappointed and have lost all confidence in Montgomery and Finley. He asks Finley to visit with some of the Wyandots, hoping to restore confidence among the Indians he serves. Abstract Number - 684
