Excerpt from Report of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs to the Secretary of the Interior: For the Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 1909 Sir: I have the honor to transmit herewith the seventy-eighth annual report of the Office of Indian Affairs, covering the period July 1, 1908, to June 30, 1909. The resignation of my predecessor, Hon. Francis E. Leupp, took effect on the 18th day of June, 1909. On the 19th day of June I took the oath of office as commissioner. As the administration of the service thus changed hands in the last month of the fiscal year, the events recorded in this report fall almost entirely within Mr. Leupp's term. I have tried, therefore, to make the record largely a simple statement of fact, uncolored by my own views. For whatever there may be here in the way of indications of future work I alone am responsible. As to the lines of policy which the bureau will follow, I prefer to let the coming year speak for itself; but here I would record the debt which I feel I owe to Commissioner Leupp in his having turned over to me a service to which he has contributed undying qualities through his love of truth, his fearlessness in working for the end as he saw it, his unbounded energy in handling details, and his intense personal loyalty both to the office staff and to the field force. These qualities in him have quickened the service in a way which will contribute daily to the success any successor might achieve. The Indian Service is primarily educational. It is a great outdoor-indoor school, with the emphasis on the outdoor. The students in this school are 300,000 individuals, ranging in age from babes at the breast to the old men and women of the tribes, and with a range of characteristics which is indicated by no one fact perhaps better than that these 300,000 individuals speak about 250 fairly distinct dialects. The plant which composes the physical properties of this school consists of an area of land nearly twice the size of the State of New York, or larger than the State of Missouri, scattered through 26 States, in areas ranging from a few hundred acres to some as large as the smaller States of the Union.
