Muskogee, Oklahoma

Mr. Guion Miller,

Special Commissioner

Court of Claims,

Washington, D. C.

Sir:

I am in receipt of your letter of October 15, 1909. (C. F. 4929), in connection with the eastern Cherokee enrollment. You ask if there is on the rolls prepared by this office the name of Sallie Agent. This person claims to be about 22 years of age and to be the daughter of Dick Agent and Elsie Drywater.

In reply you are advised that the name given by you does not appear on the rolls of Cherokee citizens as prepared by this office, nor do I find any application for such enrollment. I find, however, that Dick Agent in 1880 and 1896 was enrolled as Agent Dirttrack, and that Charlotte Dirttrack, who is enrolled opposite No. 20368, and whose present age, according to the records of this office, is 23, is the daughter of Agent Dirttrack and Elsie Drywater.

This information is given you in view of the possibility that this may be the person about whom you inquire.

Respectfully,

Commissioner.
