Office of Indian Affairs
San Francisco Cal
September 1st 1864
In compliance with your instructions of 23d May
last, in reference to the annual report of the condition
of Indian Affairs in this Superintendency, I have
the honor to forward as complete a return as the limited
time at my disposal will allow me to compile.
I have occupied my present position only since the
26th of May and much of my time has been
employed in receiving the property from my predecessors
and in effecting such change as the good of the
service seemed most urgently to demand.
I have communicated freely with the Dept and endeavored
to inform you as fully as possible of the condition in
which I found Indian Affairs and of my action
in relation thereto, as well as proposed plans for the
future. I deem a repetition of these matters to be
unnecessary and shall confine this report to a general
account of the location and character of he several
Reservations, the number and condition of the Indians
thereon, and of farming operations during the year.
I accompany this with sketches of the four
Reservations within my Superintendency, from which
you can form a general idea of their situation and
extent, the position of the improvements &c.
Please find also a statistical report of farming
