Department of the Interior
Office Indian Affairs
April 9th 1862

Sir
I have the honor to submit for your consideration a report
from Agent Hanson of Feb 14 and also his letter with accompanying
papers of Feb 28 1862 relative to the destruction by flood of the
Klamath Reservation in California and the selection of a new
Reservation in the Smith River Valley with a map thereof as
submitted by him

The report having already been submitted to the Senate
Committee on Indian Affairs and understood to meet their approval
I would respectfully recommend should it meet with your concurrence
that the President be requested to cause such portions
of the proposed reservation as have been proclaimed for sale and
are not included in the purchases made by Agent Hanson from
individuals to be withdrawn from sale and that the local land office
be instructed to respect the same as an Indian Reservation until
otherwise ordered.

Very respectfully
Your obt svt
Wm P. Dole
Commissioner

Hon Caleb B Smith
Secretary of the Interior
