Hon Wm P. Dole
Com. Ind. Aff's

Sir:- Enclosed, I send
you a copy of a letter I addressed to Supt.
Hanson, and, his reply. The circumstances
leading to this correspondence, were as follows.
Happening in Wentworth's office,
some four days since; he remarked to me,
"Hanson says those herds lost in the snow
storm belonged to government, and not to
him; the loss was not his." — An hour after I
met Mr. Swift, late Supervisor of Sonoma
Co. and he accosted me, and said — "Doctor,
I just saw Mr. Hanson, and his travelling
Agent, Mr. Clark, and as I was speaking
of his painful loss, by reason of the
heavy snow-storm, Mr. Clark replied
the loss was not Mr. Hanson's:- no; said
Mr. Hanson, the cattle belonged to the
Indians; the loss is a public one — This
makes it necessary for me to go back
and explain. On my arrival here in
Sept., some evil minded persons told me
Mr. Hanson had a thousand; or more
