Unalaska & reported to the authorities.
The Revenue Cutter "Manning" went to
Unimak island with Jackson & officers
found and buried the three dead men
(whose bones had been cleaned by foxes), &
found and arrested Hardy, who had
the money and watches of the dead
men on his person. It was most an
outrageous and cold blooded murder &
the perpetrator ought to suffer death.
Grand jury now examining into Indian
murder on south side of Unalaska island.
The case of U.S. v. Hardy cannot be
tried until the "Manning" can go to Unimak
Island for witnesses, and certain guns
hidden there by Hardy. This will make
us very slow, apparently, in this term
but I have determined that nothing shall
be left undone to bring to punishment the
man who killed the three miners on Unimak.
