In this letter to H.W. Farnsworth, William D. Blackford addressed recent events related to Indian Depredation claims. Blackford explained that he "did not succeed in getting any of our Indian dep. claims passed Congress during it last session, but I made some progress and I ask your leave to try again." Accompanying Blackford's letter are House Resolutions 3873 (relief for William Zigler, Norris Harer, William T. Ashbell, and Courtney Holmes) and H. R. 3875 (relief of Christopher Weidner, Henry Hegwer, Moise Bellmard, Louis Pashall, Aaron Grigsby, Harvey L. Bickford, and Thomas Stanley composing the firm of Bickford and Stanley), which were passed by the United States House of Representatives on February 8, 1873. Another enclosure was Senate Bill 1423 For the relief of persons for damages sustained by reason of Indian depredations. The Senate bill was reported with amendments but apparently not passed.
