Office of Ind. Affs. N. Dist Cal. San Francisco Dec 10th 1862
Hon Wm P. Dole Coms Ind. Affs.
Sir Enclosed please find claims of Silas W Tytus & J. W. Tytus with certificates endorseing the same as due and unpaid.
In regard to the Claims, I have no hesitation in saying that Agent V. E. Geiger had them enrolled as Employees at Nome Lackee Reservation — But in the year 1860 no crop or other works of improvement was made on said Reservation; not one acre of the same having ever been fenced, or any sign of the land having been cultivated for one or two years, before I assumed the Superintending Agency of the N Dist of Cal.
It is due the parties interested to say hower [however] That V. E. Geiger Esq late Agent at that place was a partner of "Agent" Tytus who owned and cultivated
cultivated between an extensive farm adjoining said Nome Lackee Reservation, using many of the Government tools and teams — and Indians to do the labor, and as I am credibly informed during the year 1860 marketed Hay and other produce of their farm to a large amount, but much the Indians were benefited by their Services I am not advised.
I have the honor to be Yr. Obt. Sevt.
