Hon A. B. Greenwood Commissioner of Indian Affairs

Sir, I left San Francisco on the 15th ulto. for the purpose of visiting the Klamath Indian Reservation and now have the honor to report the following as the result of my investigations. [underlined][Na?]-[Kell?][/underlined], the Head Quarters of this Reservation is situated five miles from the mouth of the Klamath River in a beautiful valley, containing about eight hundred acres. The land is exceedingly fertile and is adapted to the growth of every variety of grains and vegetable. A large portion of this valley is still uncultivated, and although not densely timbered contains a considerable undergrowth which [will?] require labor & expense in clearing. A present there are over one hundred and sixty acres, under a high state of cultivation. The immense yield of this farm speaks well for the industry and good management of the Agent and employes and promises great succes in the future cultivation of the greater portion of this valley. [underlined]At [Hoppa? or Hossa?][/underlined], one mile below this on the north side of the [Pines?], there is a small farm of forty acres under cultivation & in its immediate vicinity, there are eighty acres which could be successfully cultivated in addition.

[illegible?] [underlined]"[Ten men? or For ???]"[/underlined] the site of the present Military establishment, is situated upon a fertile plain on the North Side of the Klamath three fourths of a mile from Head Quarters, which contains about eighty acres of land encompassed in fertility, and of easy cultivation - [underlined][Wah-Teak?][/underlined], ten miles from Head Quarters is a small farm of eighteen acres, connected with which there are fifty acres which could be turned to a profitable account. [Cap-El?], Seventeen miles from Head Quarters and seven above [Wah_Teak?] is well and advantageously situated. It is surrounded by a Country [encompassed?] for grazing purposes, and is entirely isolated and protected from the intrusions of white settlers. The fifteen acres have cultivated in a rich though somewhat grassly soil. The country is gently undulating and offers advantages to the successful conduct of an Indian farm not possessed by other portions of the Reserve. In addition to the above locations there are many places susceptible of [improvement?], in different portions of this Reservation and which in the course of time can be made to yield largely to the support of Indians. The buildings at Head Quarters consist of a dwelling house, a Block house
