3687. HAWKINS (Benjamin), Influence with Indians.—

Towards the attainment
of our two objects of peace and lands, it is essential that our agent acquire that sort
of influence over the Indians which rests on
confidence. In this respect, I suppose, that
no man has ever obtained more influence than
Colonel Hawkins. Towards the preservation
of peace, he is omnipotent; in the encouragement
he is indefatigable and successful.—
To General Andrew Jackson. Washington ed. iv, 464.
(W. 1803)
