Read this note to Stone-Calf or Grey-Beard and say to Stone-Calf that his message asking peace has been received and that I will receive him and his band upon condition that he shall send you and your sister in first, and then he can come in with his band and give himself up to the mercy of the Government and I will receive him." Slight ink bleeding from the verso not affecting the text; folds. Very fine.
