Finley has apparently gotten word that folks in Arthur Elliott's circuit are besmirching Finley's character, and that Elliott is not correcting them. Elliott reports that this is not true. The only men who dislike Finley are the "bottle men and the copper men." "In this circuit, you are the most popular man I have knowledge of." There have been some complaints about Finley taking over from Shaw (Indian agent), and receiving benefits of some kind from the government. However, there is general support for Finley's work . The people agree that Finley should remain in charge of the mission until he is sure his work is finished. Abstract Number - 726
