January 23rd, 1818

Editor's Note: This is a letter from a representative/auditor in the U.S. Treasury Department stating that Granger has $641.00 being returned to him in the form of an enclosed check for that amount, after an examination of Granger's accounts. This welcomed gift was probably sent after Granger complained about the common discrepancies between funds promised - and those actually received. The payment was sent during the very last days of Granger's postion as Indian Agent (He resigned officially on May 3rd, 1818)
