Reading Black to James W. Throckmorton, January 1867

San Juan de Allende
Mexico
Jan 6th 1867

His Exellency
J.W. Throckmorton
Gov. &c.

Dear Sir
Your of the 6th ult was duly
received Since I have been over on this side
of the river, I have converced with one of
the men that was sent up to the Lipan
camp to recover some horses, that had been
stolen from the different town near here
He tells me that there are with the Lipan
both Mescalero and Gila Indians, these
latter Indians I suppose must come down
from New Mexico. betwen the different tribes
they muster betwen 80 and 100 fighting men
and boys. The two latter tribes did not
come down to the lower camp but sent word
by the Lipan that they wished to treat
with the Mexican Authorities for peace
He says that they have four American
children of some 8 or 10 years of age.
