KNOW ALL MEN by these Presents, that we, the Chiefs and principal men and Warriors of the Chippewa & Pottowattomie Indians of Walpole Island, being this day assembled in our Council House in presence of our visiting Superintendent—and referring to a Meeting of Council held at this place on the 18th day of March A.D. 1880—at which Meeting it was duly resolved by a majority of those present at said meeting—that the Assent of these Bands should be given to the issue of a Lease by the Indian Department in favor of Certain Gentlemen who had applied therefor—of Certain Lands & Marshes hereinafter described—and Considering that Consent thereto was then and there duly given—

We now do Surrender & yield up to our Sovereign Lady the Queen, and her Successors—all that certain parcel or tract of Land and Marsh, situated in the Province of Ontario, and County of Kent, bounded by the Chenail Ecarté, Johnston’s Channel, and the navigable waters of Lake St. Clair; and which may be described and known as St. Ann’s Island, and the Marshes adjacent thereto.

To the end that said described territory may be leased to the Applicants for the purpose of Shooting & fishing for such term and on such Conditions as the Superintendent General of Indian Affairs may Consider best for our advantage—

AND having heard read and explained a Lease executed by the Deputy Superintendent of Indian Affairs in favor of Christopher Robinson Esquire, of the City of Toronto, and certain other Gentlemen in such Lease named—and believing that such Lease was executed in good faith and in accordance with our Consent duly given in Council as aforesaid—

We hereby accept of said Lease and Confirm and establish the same.
