Letter, Andrew J. Dorn to Sir [Charles E. Mix]

Andrew J. Dorn, U.S. Neosho Agent, wrote from Kansas Territory to Charles E. Mix, Commissioner of Indian Affairs in Washington, D.C. The letter concerned a land purchase agreement he had heard about between an unnamed railroad company and the Osage Indians. Dorn felt that the Indians had been swindled, and he was reporting the incident to the government. He was concerned that this incident might set a precedent for companies buying large plots of Indian land, which would lead to skyrocketing prices and a scarcity of land.
