The Honorable Commissioner of the Indian Affairs, Washington D.C.
Sir: We have attended the council called by the Agent (Woodson) to hear the report on the delegation who visited Washington recently.
We are not entirely satisfied with their report, as it seems to conflict in some points, and to our mind some one is trying to put an attorney on us before we fully understand the matter.
We therefore write this to inform you, and to enter our protest against any one being employed, by the Cheyenne and Arapahoes, as an attorney until such time as we shall duly consent to the name, and have fully canvased the matter by the whole tribe.
We do not wish you to understand that we are utterly opposed to having an attorney, but we wish to know what we are doing, and wish the whole tribe to understand the matter as well.
And desire if one is employed that all or a full majority at least shall give their consent to the one selected.
In making this appeal to you we desire to state, that we the undersigned are fully authorized in this matter, by more than 9/10 of the Cheyennes, and that we represent the Cantonment District, Red Moon, Washita, Salt Creek and Old Crow Districts. Which comprises fully 9/10 of the Cheyennes.
And we got our friend to write this as we desire to be understood by you. And we further desire that if you see fit to make any acknowledgement of this that you direct the same to his care at this point. which we know will be given to us, and a full and careful interpretation of its contents be made us, so that we may and will fully understand.
We are Sir very respectfully: Little Wolf (his X mark); Bob-Tail- Wolf (his X mark); Wm. Little Chief (his X mark). Wittness: Albert Long, Interpreter.
Direct to care of Wm. Delendernier, Colony, Okla.
