, before attempting to drive them from their native grazing grounds.
On my return to the city I 杭州桑拿水疗会所爽记 again called on Colonel McKee to see if he had any return message to Major Savage. On my first visit the subject of reservations was not presented. Upon this occasion it was naturally brought up by an allusion to the Colonel’s plan of “christianizing the poor 261 Indians.” My doubt of the feasibility of this work was better concealed than were his doubts of my heights of 杭州油压可以干 the
Yosemite, and with considerable fervor the good old gentle man unfolded 杭州夜网狼女 his plans for the christianizing of the Indians. His estimate of the number in Mariposa county was simply fabulous, and when I quietly asked him if he supposed there were really so many, he, with some choler, answered, “Why, sir, these figures are official.”
During this conversation, I was informed that the Fresno, King’s River and Te-jon Pass selections would be recommended, although it appeared that the latter was claimed as an old and long disputed Spanish grant. On stating that I had had some idea of locating in the vicinity of the Te-jon Pass as soon as that selection was decided upon, I was advised by Colonel McKee to be in no haste to do so, but was assured of his good will in any application I might make after their 杭州约口spa policy was established; for, added the Colonel, “Major Savage has already spoken of you as an energetic and efficient person, 杭州保健按摩 and one calculated to materially aid us in future work with these Indians.”
Let it suffice here to say, that I never made application for a permit as a licensed trader on any Indian reservation; and I am not yet aware that any of these reservations have afforded the Indians means of self-support. I was somewhat familiar with the management of the Fresno agency, and do not 杭州洗浴中心推荐 hesitate to say that it was not wholly commendable. I was not personally familiar with that of the Te-jon Pass agricultural management. 杭州spa男子会所 This was one of the most delightful regions of California; and the region covered by the Mexican or Spanish grant was, in my opinion, intrinsically more valuable than the whole of the celebrated Mariposa estate of Col. Fremont, which had “millions in it.” After a vast amount of money had been expended on this reservation by the general government, I believe it was confirmed 262 as a Spanish or Mexican grant, and finally 杭州桑拿按摩全套地址 passed into the possession of General Beal, who was for some years Superintendent of Indian Affairs in 杭州保健按摩电话 California. I never saw General Beal, and therefore was only able to judge of him or his management through his official reports and letters relating to the Indian Affairs of California. These will receive some special notice 杭州丝袜按摩 further on.
My recollections of the interviews with Colonel McKee, are
of a most agreeable character. The sincerity with which he advised me with regard to my individual 杭州足浴xt affairs, and the correctness of his representations of the prospective condition of the Tejon Pass, if it should prove a valid Mexican grant, was serviceable to me, and subsequent events verified his judgment. Colonel McKee was a high-minded chri
