This matter has been, by special aot of Congress, left to the President of the United States to settle as he deems proper. All seem to1 concede that he will employ an entirely different method from the customary run that everybody expected. "The reservation is located Just west of the 98th meridian and north of the Red river, about forty miles north of Henrietta, , Texas. I have been over the ground, and if it waa 100 miles farther east it would be one of the finest countries in the West; The soil is rich and fine; for stock raising it cannot be excelled; but I am of the opinion it would not be a paying in vestment for farming. I would - not advise any one in this particular way. Some years crops are good and some years they fall. I am not going."
