      behalf of the Onida Nation given & entered into the foregoing
      agreement or lease to & with the above named Joseph Mabee &
      Jacob Schuyler and the deponents further say that the said
      agreement as aforesaid was made by the consent & approbation of
      the Onida Nation of Indians, as they have often heard sundry of
      the same Nation confess & acknowledge; particularly the said
      Peter Marsh says that early in the month of April last past,
      Schenando, Ludwick, Anthony, Jacob Dackstedder, John Denny &
      some others of the Chiefs of the said Nation, together with a
      surveyor called upon the persons in the said lease or agreement
      mentioned at their houses & offered & proposed to survey off
      the said tract to the said persons, but the survey was
      postponed for the reasons in the foregoing certificate of John
      Reed mentioned. These Deponents further say that the above
      named Joseph Mabee was actually resident on the said tract of
      land (between the Chittelingo & the Military Tract of lands) on
      the first of July 1794 & has occupied & improved thereon to

      Schuyler Jun. & the said Peter & Gerrit occupied & improved the
      said described piece of land before & on the first day of
      January last past, & by the consent & approbation of the Onida
      Nation and also that they are all of full age & have families
      except the said David Schuyler Jun. But whether the dwelling
      houses of the said persons (except the said Joseph Mabee) are
      situated on the tract lately purchased of the Onida Nation,
      these Deponents are ignorant, the line between the said tract &
      Hardenburgh's location not being ascertained, & the houses
      standing near the same. Conrad Klock, (resident on the Onida
      Reservation) being duly sworn, says that the above named

      described for more than one year last past by the consent &
      approbation of the Onida Nation, as he verily believes.
