VIII. THE KLAMATH RIVER RESERVATION1858-1894* (continued)
C. SUPPLYING the RESERVATION with HARD GOODS from CRESCENT CITY
The Crescent City Herald in May 1858 reported, "Quite a fleet of canoes, manned by forty Indians, arrived from the Klamath on May 22d. They came for the purpose of taking down provisions for their use on the reservation." In August 1860 the Herald observed, "The tugboat Maryann came to the Klamath with freight for the reservation, but it was unable to enter for want of water, so most of the freight was landed in canoes; the rest was thrown overboard to float ashore."
Agent Buell with his wife and a young female visitor, accompanied by John Daggett and a boatman, started from Crescent City for the mouth of the Klamath in a surfboat. The river was high and the breakers strong, and the boat was driven ashore on the north spit. A number of Yurok rushed to their aid, and they succeeded in getting the boat into the river and reaching the agency in safety, though thoroughly drenched and cold.
