Hon. Comm'r of Ind. Affairs

Sir:
I have just arrived at Ft. Lapwai, having completed all new survey south of Lawyer's Canyon, and east of the Boise Mountains, and collected all Indians who are to take their land in that vicinity. All the Indians having their homes at Kamiah in Meadow Creek are registered and allotted except a few who take their allotments on unsurveyed land north of the Lawyers Canyon. These Indians will be allotted when we reach that locality. On Monday we begin work on unsurveyed land near the south line of the reservation and work west to Lake Waha region. I will as soon as I can [[draw?]] off my field work, make a detailed statement of the number of allotments & persons allotted to date.

Respectfully
