There is a break here in the journal of eight days. This part of the journal would have contained an account of the conference with the Indiana Indians regarding the sale of land to the Brothertown Indians. The Delaware Indians having refused to join the council, it was quite evident in advance that nothing definite attained. In 1822 Thomas Dean made a treaty with the Wisconsin Indians by which the necessary amount of lands were se- cured near Green Bay, Wis., to which the Brothertown Indians of New York were transferred. They now live on their land on the east share of Lake Winnebaga. J. C. D.
