Letters describes the details involved with negotiating treaties with 16 Indian tribes on the Mariposa River (How-ech-es, Chook-chau-ees, Chou-chill-ies, Po-ho-neech-es, Nook-choos, Pit-each-es, Cas-soes, Toom-nas, Tal-lin-ches, Pos-ke-sas, Wa-cha-bets, I-tech-ees, Cho-e-nim-nees, Cho-e-nim-nees, Cho-ki-me-nas, No-to-no-tos, We-mal-ches), as well as the geography of the lands reserved for the Indians. They believe the treaties will keep the Indians peaceable with plenty of food and worth it to spend the money on feeding the flock than fighting. California is divided into 3 separate districts for the purpose of negotiating, with McKee heading the North, Wozencraft to the middle and Barbour to the South. Enclosed copy of treaty with a list of the 16 tribes.
