Attempt to Correct an Order of Buttons

August 20 - November 8, 1907

Superintendent William A. Mercer corrects a previous request from 20 gross buttons for $2.40 to 240 dozen buttons for $28.80.

Office of Indian Affairs Chief Clerk F. M. Conser informs Mercer that the contract cannot be changed since it has already been approved. If the buttons have not yet arrived, Conser suggests that they can cancel the order and purchase buttons on the open market. 

Acting Superintendent J. R. Wise informs the Commissioner of Indian Affairs that the buttons from the original order arrived and suggests ways that they could buy more buttons.
