T G Western Esq
Supt Indian Affrs

Sir
I learned by Mr
Richie and Jack Ivy, that you had
not recd. any communications from
me in reply to letters you had
from me with instructions to
Post no 1 I am surprised to hear
you have not as I wrote you
about the first of August in ans-
wer to your two letters each one
enclosing a certified copy of the service
of Col. M. Travis as trader at this
Post. I reported to you through Col. Wheelock
who styled himself agent for that place
a coppy of the Invoice of Such Goods
as I had carried up for the purpose
of opening the trade. I have stopped at
what is called the Marrow bone Spring
in the Lower Cross Timbers about Two
or three miles from the West Fork of
the Trinity river the same place where
a council was held with Indians some
Two or Three years ago. Col. T.I. Smith
