Dear Sandy: [Clapperton]

I send you the above list. Collect all you can for Saint Louis creditors of Ross. In the case of John-nee, there is $185-two bounties, and I am only paid for one. I will get an order from Commissioner of Indian Affairs to collect for me $15 to make it right. All is going on right. I hope to see you in a mouth, and I hope you and Nash and Rob can fix up the salt-works. If Brown will go there and keep sober, I would take it. All well,
