Bennet to John Stocks (1905), the then-Deputy Commissioner of Public Works of the North-West Territories (which included present-day Alberta and Saskatchewan at the time).

Attached to the census of the Athabasca District is also a document noting the “division of the Chipewyan Nation” according to the Census taken.
