LETTER ON INDIAN GRAVES 1923 March, 21
Hayward Indian School
March 21, 1923
Mr. C.E. Brown
State Historical Society
Dear Mr. Brown:
When Father Gordon was in this office yesterday, he seemed somewhat surprised when I advised him that I had not received a letter from you in the past ten days, and he informed me that it had been your intention to write me concerning the matter of the removal of the Indian graves lying in the reservoir basin which is now nearing completion by the Wisconsin-Minnesota Light and Power Company. I told Father Gordon I would write you a letter regarding the matter.
In accordance with one of the requirements of its license, the Power Company began the first of last week to move the graves and they are now busy engaged at that work, their plan being to attend to those graves first that lie in the low land along the Chippewa River. If you are interested in this from a historical standpoint and desire to come here, it might be well for you to plan to it at a very early date, although it will probably be some little time before the graves on the higher ground are moved.
If I can be of any service to you in connection with this, please command me.
Very truly yours,
