I receivd 2 letters from B Young and Lot Smith. Daggs the great sheep Man of San Francis[co] Mountains and his herder a stout Englishman undertook to kill Lot Smith But Lot got the first shot. Cut off one of the fingers of the Englishman and stove his gun to peaces so he Could not shoot. They then beged for quarters and the fight stoped.
