Senate Journal 1824 (30-318503-P147A.pdf)


To the Senate and House of Representatives:

The accounts of Samuel F. Hussey and Jackson Davis, Agents for the Penobscot tribe of Indians, having been laid before the Governor and Council for inspection and settlement, and the same having been adjusted and settled agreeably to the provisions of the sixth section of "An Act for the regulation of the Penobscot and Passamaquoddy tribes of Indians," passed March 5, 1821. I lay copies thereof, and of the doings of the Council thereon, before the two branches of the Legislature for their consideration. - As the appropriation made by the Resolve of the 11th of February last was found to be insufficient to enable the Agents to purchase all the articles required by treaty, to be furnished for the use of said tribe of Indians, and as I was requested by said Resolve to carry into full effect all the terms and conditions of said treaty, on the part of this State to be performed, I directed the quantity of powder, to which said Indians were entitled the present year, to be delivered by the Acting Quarter Master General from the Arsenal of the State. -
