Clymer’s words on the verso read: ”The Beef Issue 1873. Spotted Buffalo. In 1873 when the Red Cloud Indian Agency was moved from the Platte River near Fort Laramie to the White River area some 75 miles north the indian rations were delivered to them there and the beef were issued on the hoof every few days by the cowboys of the beef contractor who had a vast herd on the Platte. The Texas Long Horns of the Beef Issue were very wild, and could run as fast as elk and the Sioux had a glorious hunt riding them down and killing them like they slaughtered the buffalo in pre reservation times. John Clymer.”
