Content Description re: Hartsuff opens with the speculation that his address may be "Pine Ridge, &c. &c." forever and goes on to complain about the speed with which the Indians continue to deliberate and negotiate the settlement. He also asserts that peace is the only alternative, for resistance, while they are all on the reservation and under the gun, would mean "annihilation."
