Johnston has completed the papers in the case of sub-agent John Shaw, which will be sent to Governor Lewis Cass. He hopes the case will be handled tactfully but feels that Shaw's improper actions towards the Indians is cause for his removal. Johnston suggests that James Montgomery would be a satisfactory replacement at Upper Sandusky. In a postscript, Johnston reports the disgraceful murder of three Indian women, four Indian children, and two Indian men by white setters in Madison County, Indiana. Abstract Number - 704
