Hon. Commis of Indian Affairs
Sir:

I would respectfully request that I be authorized to purchase 4400 lbs of grain [[?]] so badly at a cost of not to exceed 2 cents per lb. and 4000 lbs of hay not to exceed one cent per lb. for the 4 horses under my charge.

I am anxious to make this purchase speedily, as I have been for some days feeding borrowed feed and the Railroad companies are buying perfusly that grain is advancing in price and becoming scarce in this vicinity.

Respectfully
