Office Ind Affs Sept 8th/63
Hon Wm. P. Dole, Com'r &c
Enclosed please find copy of Hamblen's bond for the delivery of Cattle - 220 head was delivered weighed & branded in Aug. Another drove perhaps about the same number is on the way & I have extended the time for the delivery of the remainder of the Contract. A letter from Special Agent, Ridwell states "the Indians Collected in Butte Co. are being now removed, he employed teams at his own charge, as I was out of funds - The excitement in Butte is dying out.
I had to make myself personally responsible to Hamblen for the 220 head of cattle delivered, as the money was not in hand. Certainly the Indian Service in Cal. will prove a failure if more funds is not in command & that in time.
I have the honor to be yr. obt. Servt.
