I have the honor to be, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

J. STEWART,

Captain, Third Artillery, Commanding Post.

HEADQUARTERS DISTRICT OF OREGON, Fort Vancouver, Wash. Ter., September 2, 1863.

Colonel R. F. MAURY,

1st Oreg. Cav., Commanding Expedition against Snake Indians, Fort Boise, Idaho Ter.:

COLONEL: I approve of your proposition (in your very interesting and satisfactory letter of the 8th ultimo) to go the headwaters of the Owyhee and Malheur Rivers. * So far as your time and means will permit, I am satisfied that any operations in that quarter will be well directed. Complaints of the hostile acts of the Snake Indians south of Auburn have reached me and a memorial for troops sent, through the Governor of Oregon. If on your way back you find yourself able to take a turn in that direction, it will no doubt be important for the peace of the frontiers.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

BENJ. ALVORD,

Brigadier-General, U. S. Volunteers, Commanding District.
