OFFICE INDIAN AFFAIRS,
NORTHERN DISTRICT, CALIFORNIA.
San Francisco, Apl 17th 1862

Hon Wm P. Dole

Sir.
Enclosed please
find amount necessary for the indian
Service in the N. Dist. Cal. for the First Quarter
of 1862

It will be observed owing to the
very destitute condition of the indians on
Smith River Valley, (the place proposed
for a new reservation where the Humboldt
Eel River & Klamath indians have been
removed) the estimate for their subsistance
&c is larger than it otherwise have been,
and in addition to which I wish to
make provisions for those who are now
being "hunted up" by the troops (under
orders of Brig. Genl. Wright,) in the Trinity
Humboldt and Eel River mountains All
of whom I have directed to be taken to the
Smith River Valley, because of the cheapness
of supplies &c

I have the honor
to be your Obt. Sevt.
Geo. M. Hanson
Supt. Ind. Affs
&c
