[ Fort Alexander, Fraser River, [Crease, Lindley], BCA PDP07186 ]

Judge Cox and the party formed to proceed from Alexandria against the Chilcoaten Indians were ready to start nearly three weeks ago; Mr. McLean, of the Bonaparte, is captain of the company; his son Donald McLean also accompanies him. Placards had been posted round the different creeks at Cariboo calling for volunteers, offering $250 for each man caught who was concerned in the late murders. Several Canadians and Englishmen were met coming from Williams Creek to join the party.
