them a chance to work for themselves, with tools and instruction, and they
will 
ask very little from the government, 
Mr. Lockhart takes an honest, zealous interest in the welfare of the Indians,
and it would be his pride to teach them that which they are so anxious to
learn--to cultivate the ground. 
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

Acting Governor, Ex Oficio Superintendent Indian Afairs.

OFFICE OF INDIAN AGENT, N. T., 
Carson City, dudy 9, 1863. 
SIR: I have recently been making a tour among the Pah Utah Indians. I 
find them delighted over the idea of cultivating their reservations. They
are 
beginning to see that this will soon be their only means of subsistence,
and the 
only way by which they can long hold the land already given them. 
I am in fine spirits about improving their condition, and have no doubt at
all 
but that as much progress can be made next year wish them as was ever made
with any tribe, and perhaps more in the same lenAth of time. About 2,000
Indians have lately been vaccinated, and many more are coming up to Lieuten-
ant Churchill to' be vaccinated. 
There is entire peace and harmony with all the Indian tribes in this Territory,
I am glad to say. I design soon to'&visit the Indians about Reece river,
as that 
is the only place just now where I can see that trouble might arise on account
of the rapid influx of people in that direction. 
I have the honor to be your obedient servant,

some months past, has been induced to come in with his band, and promises
to

to- 
day in council; wished to make a firm and lasting peace; encamped at a place
near the city, where we can supervise his conduct, and agrees to remain there
until we tell him to go to his hunting ground1s; and have sent messengers
