LETTER FROM THE COMMISSIONER OF INDIAN AFFAIRS TO COLONEL BENTON.

by Manypenny, George W

Condition: See description


Wash.,: Union Office, 1855. First Edition. 15pp. dbd, old rubber stamp eradicated from title page. This printed letter was issued by Manypenny to reply to Thomas Hart Benton's attack on Manypenny through the National Intellingencer. It was the age old problem on how monies from the Indian Department were spent and the distribution of goods to the Indians. This case involved material goods for the California Indians. Edward F. Beale was the superintendent of Indian Affairs for that region and who had acquired his position through the efforts of Benton. Manypenny had questioned some of Beale's expenses. This upset Benton who went on the offensive. Colonel John Fremont and Gwinn Heap were also involved to some extent. There were many side issues such as Manypenny's trip to Westport, Missouri which was three times cheaper that the one Beale and Benton made. A very important privately printed letter which gives insight into the frontier and its politics. Not in NUC.
