    Description

    Autograph Indian Letter Signed, "Joseph La Roche, Jr." Four integral pages, 5" x 8", March 18, 1890, Bijou Stills, South Dakota. La Roche writes to a friend, George Farrar, about conditions in Bijou Springs, "Near the Agency, the white people are coming in like flies...". He also writes of the difficulty many Indians have in understanding why Whites can claim traditional Indian lands. An interesting letter.

    Condition: Slight stains, else near fine.
