FLATHEAD INDIAN AGENCY,
Arlee P.O., Mont., December, 1889.

The undersigned, a Flathead Indian patentee of land in Bitter Root Valley, now living near the agency, on the Jocko Reservation, Mont., do certify that I acted as guide for General Henry B. Carrington, special agent of the Interior Department, during his negotiations with Chief Carlos and other Indian patentees of lands in Bitter Root Valley, Montana; that I accompanied him to the lands under examination, and upon examination of the “consents” secured to the appraisement and sale of fifty-three tracts, do state as my best conviction and belief that the parties signing the same are the true heirs and representatives of the deceased patentees who said signers answer for is said executed “consents”.
