    This letter from Governor Isaac Ingalls Stevens to Captain Gilmore Hays, an officer in Washington Territory's volunteer militia, informs Hays of troop movements (both the white volunteers under the command of Captain B. L. Henness and the "friendly Indians" under the command of Captain S. S. Ford, Junior) and of the wagon train, under the command of Quartermaster General W. W. Miller. Stevens stresses the importance of building the blockhouse, which Hays will be ordered to leave garrisoned when his battalion is moved to the Muckleshoot Prairie on February 26th. Stevens also refers to the "election of Major" on Thursday, which is very probably the election that promoted Hays to that rank. less
