|Hubbell Big Horse, Cheyenne, says:
I have been working a good deal since I came back, served one year and six months as Indian scout. I did not get ahead any while I was a scout, several of the boys they join the scouts.
I worked on a farm in New Jersey I saw how white man lived way to. I knkow that is a better way than the Indian live now. Had I the chance to do so I would open up a farm and live on it, and make mhy own living.
About all I want is a title to my land, so I will know that no white man or Indian can take it away from me.

From John Miles, Darlington, (date faded) 1875.
In securing the attendance of Cheyenne children at our school... and to get the two tribes to consent to have their children mingle in the same school is a triumph over tribal animosities. "Bull Bear", "Big Horse", and "White Shield" Cheyenne Chiefs who did not join in the chase on account of sickness have been quite energetic in placing their children in the school.
"Bull Bear", one of the noted old war chiefs has now got a son nine (9) years of age in the school with his hair "shingled" close and neat, as is required of all and dressed like a white boy . He says he has raised two or three older sons "in the Army" as we would express it and he now gives his last son "to Washington to educate". One other Cheyenne who presented me his little girl to place in school made a very touching speech in substance about as follows. "The Whites killed my father and mother at Sand Creek and last summer took my only brother and sent him away from us. My heart has felt bad towards the Whites many years but today I have thrown that feeling all away. Take my child as a proof of my sincerity."

F.E. Farrell, U.S. Disbursing Officer, Darlington, Oklahoma.
When you was at my house on the night of December 23rd. last, you told me that you had requested authority for money belonging to my niece, Pauline Big Horse, so you could send her to Arizona and the following day Mrs. Wilcox notified me that the authority had been granted.
I saw Paulines mother and she is willing to have Pauline sent to Phoenix, Arizona. I hope by this time she is over there and I want to thank you for the interest you took in her case and I hope she will improve and come back well.
I wish you, soon, to let me know if she is over there. I am here in Chicago and if any of my lease money comes to you please send to me here.
Very respectfully yours, /S/ Richard Davis
