Rockford Michigan
Dec. 28. 1878.

Hon. E. A. Hayt
Com. Ind. Affs.

      I have the honor to enclose a letter just received from F M Carter, formerly Agency physician at Siletz Oregon, referring to the management of the Agency.
      When I was there fifteen months ago, the agency was in a dilapidated condition and there was much to criticise in the management of Agent Bagley – (see my report) It was then contemplated to remove the Indians, and abandon the Agency. If it is to be continued, I think it would be well to send a new man and relieve Agent Bagley.

Very respectfully &c
E. C. Watkins
