2. How many sheep were grazed on the Blood Reserve by Greater Production lessees in 1919?
3. Did the cattle-owning Blood Indians protest to the department or to any of its officers in the Spring of 1918 against the presence of the sheep on. their cattle grazing range?
4. If so, what action was taken by the Government to meet their objections?
