Washington Government - Messages to the Governor about the Yakima War.
"Here we are without a battle except a skirmish four days since, with some forty Indians, who dedied us as we approached the Yakima river. We thought at first it was the prelude to the battle with the whole of their force, and forded the stream to an island with our mounted troops, eighteen dragoons and eight pioneers."
