FROM

THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES,

TRANSMITTING

A statement of amounts paid to persons concerned in negotiating Indian

May 18, 1840.
Referred to the Committee on Indian Affairs.

To the House of Representatives of the United States :

I transmit the report of the Secretary of War, furnishing a statement of the ainounts paid to persons concerned in negotiating Indian treaties since 1829, &c., which completes the information called for by the resolution of the House of Representatives, dated the 28th January, 1839, upon that subject, and the disbursing officers in the War Department.

M. VAN BUREN. WASHINGTON, May 16, 1840.

WAR DEPARTMENT, May 16, 1840. Sir: I have the honor to transmit, herewith, a report of the Second Anditor, furnishing a statement of the amounts paid to persons concerned in negotiating Indian treaties since 1829, &c., which completes the information called for by the resolution of the House of Representatives, dated the 28th January, 1839; so much therein as relates to the disbursing offi. cers in the several bureaus of the department having been submitted, together with my communication of the 2d March, 1839. Very respectfully, your most obedient servant,

J. R. POINSETT. The PRESIDENT of the United States.

TREASURY DEPARTMENT,

Second Auditor's Office, May 14, 1840. Sir: I have the honor to transmit, herewith, an answer 10 so much of the resolution of the House of Representatives of the 28th January, 1839, asking for a statement showing the amount paid to persons concerned in Degotiating Indian treaties since 1829, &c., as was referred to this office. The reason why the information could not be promptly furnished when your communication was first received, was, at the time, assigned ; and I now have to add, that a great press of business has caused its delay till this time. Many accounts (and some of them very voluminous) having to undergo strict scrutiny, rendered the preparation of the statement tedious.

T'he copy of the resolution, sent to this office, is herewith returned. I have the honor to be, with great respect, your obedient servant,

W. B. LEWIS. Hon. J. R. Poinsett,

Secretary of War.

N. B. The commissioners were paid at the rate of $8 per diem, while employed in negotiating, and $8 for every 20 miles' travel.

* These sums include their compensation for much service rendered in the Indian country, between October, 1832, and January, 1835, beside negotiating treaties, but not being separaied in their accounts, they cannot be separated here.
