Abstract:

April 17, 1831, letter from John Marsh at Prairie du Chien, to D.P. Campbell, president of the Mississippi Land Company of New York, responding to an invitation by A. Lay (cartographer Amos Lay?) to assist the firm in its efforts to acquire the Carver tract (lands in Minnesota and Wisconsin supposed to have been granted to Jonathan Carver in 1767 by the Western Sioux).

Citing his friendship with the Sioux, Marsh states that he would "concur in any endeavor ... beneficial to those Indians & no other." He then suggests that given the current Indian war, the government might be willing to extinguish the Sioux title to the Carver grant to provide a land buffer "for the purpose of maintaining the peace between the Sioux & Chippeways."
