OFFICE INDIAN AFFAIRS, SOUTHERN DISTRICT, CALIFORNIA.

San Francisco, Jan'y 4th 1861

Hon Wm P. Dole Commissioner Indian Affairs Washington D.C.

Sir Your letter of the 20th Dec in reference to the division of Indian goods for the two Districts of California was received this morning. In accordance with your letter of the 25th June/61, I consulted with Geo. M. Hanson Esqr of Cala, and _ Rector Esqr, Indian Agt, for Oregon, following out the instructions therein contained. I now take pleasure in saying that the goods for Cala have been divided equally between the two Districts, the quantity forwarded being entirely inadequate to the wants of the Indians of either district.

In my Quarterly report ending Dec 31st 1861, which will be forwarded very shortly, I shall refer more fully to this subject.

I remain Very Respectfully Your Obt Servt Jno. P. H. Wentworth Supt Agt S. D. Cala
