Untitled Document Cottonwood Falls
Aug. 25 1860
Mr. S. N. Wood

Dear Sir, The occasion of my sending you this note is a flagrant violation of the Laws, at Cottonwood Falls on last thursday the 23 inst. A large party of the Kaw Indians being encamped at that place on the above named day were abundantly supplied with whiskey by three or four individuals of the place and vicinity. As is generally the result, a big fight occurred during the evening and night among the indians, and some were killed how many I have no positive information. The necessary proof can be had, I think, if the matter is investigated, to bring the guilty parties to justice. For further information you can apply to me by letter at the Falls or otherwise at my residence three miles below.

Yours etc J B Hodgin
S. N. Wood Attorney

Council Grove

P. S. I have reasons for wishing this information considered confidential by you, and my name suppressed in the making investigation
Yours as before J. B. Hodgin
