Sealed, June 27, 1850
 
 
 
 
 
Notation:
N.B. Samuel Shantup has gone to the State of Wisconsin.  He lets his land and received the rent before he left to pay his expenses.      
 
 
                 
 
 
 
 
Rachel Hoxie, one of the Tribe, a girl about sixteen years old, has been sick and on expense the month of the past year and has had a child. The father of the child is a worthless wretch.  I have taken his notes for the amount of her expenses. I think I shall be able to collect the notes.
 
 
Judicial Action:
Elias Hewitt account with Pequot Tribe of Indians.  Allowed and approved, 1850.
