Dear Miss Fletcher.

I finally "rounded" up Geo Decard(Police) and took him out strikethrough]]th[/strikethrough]] to survey his land, and I found the Nos. of the 40 acres that you wanted, to be -"SW 1/4 of the NE 1/4 of Sec.4-T.26 R.9."=40 acres.

It was a hard job as I had to start from the agency tract and survey over creeks, hill and brush and farms.

I am still breaking in cattle for the Indians to break prairie.  Some of them, are doing well, but most of them are waiting until corn is cultivated.  I will quit to-day as "farmer" as I have been appointed for the Omaha School.  The soldiers are here to run of cattle.  All well

Very Respectfully,
M. M. [[?]]
