In this letter to Ida M. Ferris, Walter Battice discusses recent events at the Sac and Fox Agency in Oklahoma. In particular, Battice explains to Ferris that the Sac and Fox Agency possessed records of all treaties between the Sac and the Fox and the U.S. Government that had been approved since 1804, and he states that "Mr. Curtis would gladly assist you in obtaining them." In addition, Battice addresses past "aggrievances" to the Sac and Fox by stating that "we as educated Indians have to the conclusion that its too late to ponder or to serve any purpose by going into the matter of right and wrong."
