My Brothers,
All promises made by the authorised agents of the United States shall be complied with in good faith; and you shall be paid for the Rifles and Muskets which you lost, while in the service of the United States.

My Brothers,
All your Warriors who were in the service of the United States shall be paid agreeably to the promise made to them by your Father, the President of the United States, on the 14th day of February 1814.

My Brothers,
It made the Heart of your Father bleed, when he heard that the Council house, the place of public worship, and the habitations of the Tuscaroras, had been destroyed by the torch of the Enemy; and that their families were dispersed and without shelter in the most inclement season of the year. He has instructed me to say to you that he will lay their case before the grand council of the Nation, which cannot fail to make ample provision.
