Johnston has completed the papers in the case of Mr. Shaw which will be sent to Governor Lewis Cass. He hopes the case will be handled tactfully but feels that due to the improper actions of Shaw towards the Indians, Shaw should be removed from the Territory. Johnston suggests that he might be changed with a James Montgomery who would be satisfactory at Upper Sandusky. The writer hopes the case will not cause hard feelings between himself and Finley. In a postscript, Johnston reports the disgraceful murder of three Indian women, four children, and two men. Abstract Number - 704
