Native American Records

Creek Agency, September 1, 1869.
Sin: I have the honor to enclose herewith discharge and other papers of a Creek subject named Tef-fah.

He says that the account of his retained pay is correct, but he further states that he is entitled to bounty, and as he has not received it, he would like to know whether it cannot be added to the enclosed account.

As I know nothing about it, I respectfully refer the matter to you.

I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
F. A. FIELD, Captain, United States Army, Agent.
Colonel E. S. PARKER,
Commissioner of Indian Affairs, Washington, D. C.
