"To all whom it may concern-
Kah Yaukti, a chief of the
Kootsanoo tribe called to see me this afternoon. He says
he wants his people to have schools and churches that
heretofore they have been bad and foolish but now
they want to do better. He intends to be a firm
friend to the white man and will do all in his
power to prevent his people from doing any one
harm. He heard of my being here and came
to see me to tell me what he wanted. His tribe
has had a bad name, but may the time be hasten-
ed when they shall have the love of God in their
Hearts to guide them in the paths of righteousness.
II beg of all men to treat him kindly and en-
courage him to thirst after better things. May
the Salvation, life and teachings of the Lord
Jesus Christ be made known to his people.
