(With cheque)
Ottawa, 16th December, 1895.
SIR:—
I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 2nd instant in regard to the assistance rendered by your Officers at Ungava to the sick and destitute Indians in that vicinity ; and in reply I enclose herewith cheque (No. 2922) for $120.17, being the amount of the account forwarded by you for ammunition, etc., distributed.
With regard to your desire to be informed as to whether aid should be continued, I may say that if it should prove necessary, which the Department hopes may not be the case, provisions, such as flour and meat, may be supplied to a limited extent, to deserving Indians who may be unable to provide for themselves, and also ammunition, if necessary, in small quantities.

Your obedient servant,
(Sgd.) D.C. Scott.
Acting Deputy Supt, Gen'l.
of Indian Affairs.
C.C. CHIPMAN, ESQ.,
Commissioner
Hudson's Bay Co.,
Winnipeg, Man.
Certified a true Copy.
