John P. Johnston (former work hand at the mission) writes to let Finley know that he has been very ill. He has heard rumors that Finley was responsible for the removal of sub-agent John Shaw, but he knows that this cannot be true. He expresses a desire to obtain employment on the reservation, possibly at the mission store. He has taken to including the initial "P" as his middle name in order to distinguish himself from Indian agent John Johnston.. Abstract Number - 717
