Letter is on a letterhead from the "United States Indian Service, Blackfeet Agency." Stamp covers the advertising cover for the same agency. Long, lengthy four page letter. From someone that has just arrived in his new position. "They [Indians] all work if they can get a job. The men of them look decently clean & dressed will enough in their rig which generally consists of leggings and breech cloth shirt...but the squaws are the dirtiest-filthiest-stinkiest you ever saw." Very informative letter from 1880! City: Piegan State: Montana Date: c1880 ID: 36777
