W ashington, D C. Feb 25 1865:
I propose having som e o f the usual
Sm ithonian Labels for birds etc printed with
the G overnor's name. If the G overnor seems
at all interested in N atural H istory or if he
has any liking for the reputation o f doing
scientific w ork I believe we could (urge?) him
to cause large collection to be m ade for the
Sm ithonian...
If he would even do so much as to
authorize the officers at the outposts to m ake
collections themselves or reseive them from
the Indians and forw ard them to Sitka by the
fur Cos boats I will guarantee that I can get
the collections m ade for him. If he enters at
all actively into the m atter he can by his mere
patronage cause to be sent to the Sm ithsonian
very fine collections...

D ear Sir,
Y ou are assighned to duty as C hief o f
E xploration in R ussian Am erica. Y our party
consist o f
Wm . H. E nnis, Thos. S. D enison, G eo.
R. Adam s. F , M. Sm ith, F rank E. K etchum ,
J. T. Dyer, Chas. Pease, M ichael Lebarge.

O f this p arty you are chief in comm and
and will assign to each his respective rank and
duty. M ajor Pope and party or any p art
thereof, will repo rt to you for duty while in
your division. A t-th is place supplies will be
left in charge o f Storekeeper Jam es M. Bean,
from whom you will draw , giving him receipts
for the same.
The object o f your explorations is to
explore the Kw ichpak River, prove w hether
it is the Y ukon and determ ine how far we can
use it
o u r purposes.
T he m ap
accom panying this has the shortest line
traced, for o u r w ork, and it is desirable to
keep as near this, as the topography o f the
country will adm it, and to this end, your
explorations will be directed. Y ou will treat
with the Indian tribes for laborand supplies,
and persue a course th at will render them
useful in a further prosecution o f o u r work;
and you are authorized to em ploy such
persons as you m ay deem . expedient for
purposes o f exploration, construction and
repairs. I enclose with this, orders to M aj.
Pope, failure on his part will not interfere
with vigorous action on yours.
In case o f his failure, a w inter p arty be
pushed forw ard from Y ukon, through D ease
H ouse to Babine L ake if possible, and
comm unications sent to any and all parts o f
the coast. Y o u r Judgm ent and discretion m ust
guide as facts unfold and the unknow n
regions you visit becom es fam iliar.
As already in o u r experience, the clouds,
th at were so threatening in the distance
dissolved into thin m ist on near approach, so
I feel certain you will encounter no serious
obstacle and the success will attend your
patient persevering effort.
