In this letter to General James W. Denver, Governor of the Kansas Territory, R.S. Stevens explains in the post script (p.s.) section of the letter that he had just interviewed the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury [Howell Cobb] who recommended "that 320 acres be set apart to each New York Indians." However, Stevens also explains that Cobb "will go no further," and that he, Stevens, plans on talking with the U.S. Commissioner of Indians Affairs the day after this letter was written.
