K.

The document marked K, for 450.81 dollars, for supplies by the United States Factor, from 1979, January 1, to the 25 of April, to the Indians without authority from the agent.  This document rests on the letter of Mr. Price or a voucher.  If it is admitted by the Secretary of War, the factory will have credit for it; or if it should be deemed a debt against the nation, provision is made for the payment of it in the treaty concluded last year at this place.
