My dear Sir,
Since I saw you today, my son recounts in a letter to the family the following.
Deputation is going on in a very unsatisfactory way, and I must confess that since I first undertook to help them I have altered my opinion and from what I can understand talking privately with the same natives that many would prefer that the government should take over the country as at times great injustices are practiced on them by their chief.
I wish to be very frank with you. I would have produced the letter this morning had I been able.
F.W. Chesson, Esq
