Excerpt from Reports to Hon. George Stoneman, Governor of California, on Certain Claims of the State of California Against the United States: November 1, 1878, to November 1, 1886

Dear Sir: I have the honor to submit you a report upon the several claims of the State of California against the United States, for which I have been heretofore appointed agent and counsel, and for all of which I have been so acting for a period covering the eight years last past, to wit: from November 1, 1878, to November 1, 1886.

I have from time to time during said period made to you and to your predecessor, and to the present State Surveyor-General and Adjutant-General of the State of California, and to their predecessors in office, sundry detailed reports of my acts in all these premises, and have addressed you and them from time to time such proper communications thereon as enabled you and them to keep au courant with all proceedings had therein as the same transpired. Yet, in order, at the termination of your administration as Governor of the State of California, that you may have full information on all these matters, and for the purpose of your laying the same before the Legislature at its next session, and in view of the importance to the people of California of sundry of these several claims and of many circumstances connected therewith, and especially for the purpose of having an authentic record of the history of all thereof for future reference, in so far as my agency in any of these premises has been or may be hereafter concerned, I deem it proper to now submit you a general summary, covering each of said claims as represented by me during the eight years last past.

These several claims by me represented, as agent and counsel for the State of California, are as follows, to wit:

First - The five per centum of the net proceeds of the cash sales of the public lands in California made by the United States subsequent to the date of her admission into the Union - September 9, 1850 - and not heretofore paid to the State of California by the United States.

Second - The refunding by the United States to California her quota of the direct tax levied by the United States under the Act of Congress approved August 5, 1861, and not heretofore reimbursed the State of California by the United States.

Third - The refunding by the United States to California the moneys heretofore by her expended on account of the Modoc Indian war, in north California, in 1872 and 1873, and not heretofore reimbursed the State of California by the United States.

Fourth - The refunding by the United States to California the moneys heretofore by her expended on account of Indian (other than Modoc) hostilities therein, and upon the borders thereof, between September 9, 1850, and June 27, 1882, and not heretofore reimbursed the State of California by the United States.
