       Please be adviced (sic) that the ATHABASCA INDIANS of BRITISH COLUMBIA PROVINCE in western Canada, Commonwealth of Canada, report that some sort of a SPACE SHIP or “FLYING SAUCER” has been seen in the heavy timbered area of the British Columbia Rain Forrest (sic) Area. The Athabascao Indian tribe Scouts referr (sic) to the Space Ship as "SASQUATCH SHIP" in Athabasca language meaning "SKY BOAT"

       According to recent reports from a group of hunters with the Athabasca Indians of British Columbia, the object is said to have come out of sky and hit a lake (Lake Fraser?) then rose into air and hit on Fraser River in British Columbia Province of Canada. The Space object (Missile? or possibly rocket?) is said to be [in] a haevy (sic) timber area of the place known as-:           



The Space ship or Satellite is reported to be circular, about 200 yards in diameter, and the Indians state with weight estimated of 1000 tons, object is made of white metal. The British Columbia Indians report that object is on a plateau area after it slid from Fraser River uphill into (and Thru) timber and is not visable (sic) from air but is concealed by a heavy grouth (sic) of timber in the British Columbia timbered area named “RAIN FORREST (sic)”. (Near Aggassis (sic), British Columbia, Canada)

       The Athabasca  Indians reported that the object emitts (sic) a glow at night or "LIGHT” (possibly radiation?). In view of recent reports of unidentified flying objects  (U.F.O.) perhaps it may be advicable (sic) to send some competent investigators from the R.C.M.P. office? It may be possible to locate the Space Ship (or Missile-Satellite?) by use of a low-Flying plane over Rain Forrest (sic)-plane equipt (sic) with a Geiger counter, and Scintellometer (sic) airial (sic) URANIUM LOCATING DEVICES, might be able to find the object as Indians believe it is radioactive object?

       British Columbia Indians report that the strange, object is 50 miles from Aggassis (sic), (N.W. ?) in the heavy Rain Forrest (sic) area.
