stage-station on Skeleton Creek, and started for Wichita, Kans., which place we reached on November 9. Mr. Smith having received intelligence of the severe illness of one of his family, it was decided to adjourn to meet in Paola, Kans., on Monday, November 26, on which day the commission reassembled and began the preparation of this report.

In conclusion, we desire to state that, while seeking to use the money appropriated for the business in which we have been employed, in the most rigidly economical manner, and to limit our expenditure to that amount, we have, in various ways and from various causes, apparently to us unavoidable, exceeded it, which being unauthorized to do, no account is made of such excess.

The journal of the commission will be transmitted with the accounts of the disbursing agent, Mr. Topping:

For the detailed statement of prices fixed upon the lands appraised by us, your at-
tention is invited to the schedules which are entitled “Description and Valuation of
Cherokee Lands in Indian Territory," &c., which are forwarded herewith.
Very respectfully,

WILLIAM N. WILKERSON,
EBENEZER H. TOPPING,
THOMAS E. SMITH,

Commissioners. Hon. E. A. Hayt, Commissioner of Indian Affairs, Washington, D. C.
