Spanish weakness in troops and money prolonged the capture of Bowles. Chief Kinache of Miccosukee persisted in supporting him because of prior poor treatment by Spaniards. Panton's business fared poorly in supplying Indians with goods. Miccosukees raided near Fort San Marcos. Commandant DuBreüil at San Marcos seized Mislogue of Tamatle to pressure Indians into abandoning Bowles. Folch suggested a 4,500-peso reward for surrendering Bowles. The American commissioner to the Creeks, Benjamin Hawkins, was also involved in the Bowles dilemma and Indian raids. Some clandestine goods for Bowles snuck through the Spanish blockade, but the gunboats seized several Nassau vessels. Privateers prowled along the Gulf Coast and indirectly helped Bowles. Fort San Marcos suffered from many deficiencies.
