Signed by Crook's acting aide-de-camp S. Roberts. Reports on his expedition to the Sierra Madre Mountains to locate Geronimo and his warrior band. He faults the government for their unfair treatment of the Indians and the United States government and others' habitual promise-breaking. Records a litany of wrongs that Crook posits as the reason for the Indians deep hatred of white society. Recommends dividing the Apache reservation into individual plots and extending the rights of citizenship to the Indians. In May 1883, Crook caught up with Geronimo and convinced him to return to the reservation.
Library of Congress lists George Crook's dates as 1829-1890, but other list his birth year as 1828.
