Item Description
  Letter, John T. Jones to Hon. J. W. Denver
Author: Jones, John Tecumseh (Tauy)
Date: January 16, 1858

John T. Jones, an interpreter for the Ottawa Indians, wrote from Washington urging Governor James W. Denver to provide his support for ratification of a treaty between the U.S. government and the Ottawas. Jones reported that the Secretary of the Interior was not inclined to support ratification and he believed Denver, who had negotiated the treaty with the Ottawas during his tenure as Commissioner of Indian Affairs, could influence the decision.
