Major John R. Brennan

Pine Ridge Agency

My Dear Major—

I am sending six Indians home to day. Not but what they are good men. but four of them are not fit for duty, and two of them claim their families are sick. These men all wanted to go home so I let them go— I hope it will be satisfactory to you—

Very truly yours

W. F. Cody

Note: Salutation to "Major" but this rank is unconfirmed; Buffalo Bill's Wild West performed in Worcester, Massachusetts, on July 7, 1908.
