A SEPARATE ARTICLE Entered into at fort Wayne, on the thirtieth day of September, Sept. 20, 1809. in the year rj our Lord one thousand eight hundred and nine, between William Henry Iclarrison, commissioner plenipoten- J au. 16, 1810. tiary of the United States for treating with the Indian tribes, and the Sachems and chief warriors of the Mami and Eel river tribes of Indians, which is to be considered as forming part of the treaty this day concluded between the United States and the said tribes, and their allies the Delawares and Putawatimies. As the greater part of the lands ceded to the United States, by the treaty this day concluded, was the exclusive property of the Miami nation and guaranteed to them by the treaty of Grouseland, it is considered by the said commissioner just and reasonable that their request to be allowed some further and additional compensation should be complied
