The Alexandria Indian Expedition

Daily British Colonist, June 27, 1864

Judge Cox and the party formed to proceed from Alexandria against the Chilcoaten Indians were ready to start nearly three weeks ago; Mr. McLean, of the Bonaparte, is captain of the company; his son Donald McLean also accompanies him. Placards had been posted round the different creeks at Cariboo calling for volunteers, offering $250 for each man caught who was concerned in the late murders. Several Canadians and Englishmen were met coming from Williams Creek to join the party.
