News from April 18, 1867

From Galveston Flakes Daily Bulletin, April 18, 1867.

Kerr County.  Judge Wm. E. Jones has just returned from his ranch in Kerr county.  He reports that people in that section very despondent.  The Indians have been through, and after killing large numbers of horses and calves, drove out what horses they could gather.  There were upwards of fifty carcasses of calves found where they had been killed, cut to pieces, the sinews all taken and here and there a choice piece of meat cut out.  It is the opinion of the Judge that the Indians are in large numbers on the frontier,and being unable to get sinews of deer sufficient, they have made this last raid in order to supply themselves with the necessary material of war.  It is feared the present full moon will be attended with great depredations from the savages.  San Antonio Ex. April 12.
