|Scope & Content||The collection consists of three letters (photocopies only) concerning George B. Graff. The first letter, dated February 4, 1860, is from John M. Clarke (Omaha, Neb.) to President James Buchanan in which he tries to dissuade the President from appointing George Graff as Indian agent to the Omaha Agency due to Graff's support of B.P. Rankin, a political opponent of President Buchanan. The last two letters, dated May 25 and June 4, 1860, discuss Graff's resignation as receiver at the Dakota City, Nebraska, Land Office.|
