[4]ring I will tell the story in print, and charge Noble with being a party to the fraud. I would therefore like to know what you wrote to the Dep't and what, and from whom, you were answered. Of course I don't jump to the conclusion that anything is wrong; but it is well to be ready for anything wrong. I heard yesterday that the Examiner has published a letter from me. As I have written none to that paper, I do not know what the letter can be. I hope to see a copy today. I would have left here last week, had I not found the injured man at this place. As it is I will probably be around here for at least a week more. I will not go to the ranch of which I spoke before, and am therefore wholly uncertain as to my movements. I have no money to take me to any town, but will shift along down either to the Raymond country, where there is a little house that I can use, or go down to Oakdale. But if you have occasion to write, address me here until I send other word. Before I leave I hope to finish some writing that will bring in some of the [sinews?] of war.Yours Very TrulyGeo. G. Mackenzie
