Mr. William Glover.
Mr. Ballew has given me good talks about you. I am glad to hear you are a great warrior and part of our own blood. Our white people love your nation in their hearts and wish to be near unto you.
There is a great many good people in our country who have sent Mr. Ballew to talk for them. They wish to rent some of your land and live in your country. They can make guns, tomahawks, knives, powder, lead and all kind of clothing. Would it not be good for you to have such people living among you and on your own land? These people can make trade come cheap in your country, and do anything you may want, besides would pay you a large quantity of goods any year for the rent of your lands, which now lie covered with large trees and grown up high with grass and weeds, and it is of no use to any person. I am glad to hear you are a good man. I know you will talk a good talk and hasten fast this matter, and help Mr. Ballew to get some land for good people to live on. I hope the Great Spirit
Mr. William Glover, in Chickasaw Nation. Honored by Capt. Ballew.
