OSL GANO TO MEIGS
Head Quarters L Sandusky Novr. 12th 1813
His Excellency Govr. Meigs
I have here in confinement four Indians I am not furnished with any charges against them and the former commandant could not inform me any further than they ware sent here by your Excellency to Genl. Harrison it appears they have been long in confinement, and it appears to me something ought to be done with them they cannot be tried here If they have transgressed the Law and if permited I will send them into Franklinton or where you may direct for I think it best to have them removed and wait your order, as observed in my last the men have not recd. any pay and I have not heard what has become of Colo Huntington If I dont here from him in few days will again send the paymaster to Mr Hunt. The men have had a continued serious of fatigue and have improved considerably in discipline
I have the Honour to be with respect & Est. Yr Obt Servt.
John S. Gano
