To the Hon. the Secretary of the Interior

Sir

The undersigned respectfully represent that the Mojave Indians a peaceful people living on the Colorado River are now in a suffering condition

This is in consequence of the sucession of unfavorable seasons for raising the food upon which they subsist

The Government made some provision for them but as the Agent Mr Herman Ehrenberg, appointed to receive and dis-tribute the supplies, has failed to qualify having business of his own to attend to – and the supplies are wasting away

Therefore we pray you to appoint Mr. J. Q. A. Stanley, of this place, a loyal and good man, as Agent or Superintendent for the said tribe. with whose wants and condition he is familiar, to the end that the humane intentions of the Government may be fully carried out

And your petitioners will ever pray

Los Angeles Cal. Feb. 16th 1864
