"Migration of the Indians"

The Daily Press, May 11, 1862

The Tchimpseans, and remaining Stickeen Indians, were on the move yesterday, some of them destroying their houses by fire. The Queen Charlottes have been slightly visited by the prevailing epidemic, and were burning their lodges in the afternoon. The Hydahs intended to depart on Monday, en masse, after committing their dwellings to the flames. This is owing to the directions of the Police Commissioner. It is due to the Indians to remark that they thoroughly understand the intention and spirit of these orders, and fully appreciate the humanity and wisdom of the regulation. They will take up their temporary abode upon some of the many beautiful Islands that lie between this and the Plumper Pass.
