A SEMINOLE MIKASUKIE SUB CHIEF. And is one of the most distinguished warriors of his tribe. He is six feet three inches in height and well proportioned, and is esteemed one of the best ball players among his people. His countenance indicates any thing but intelligence or shrewdness; on the contrary, it exhibits evidence of a capacity to commit any act, however cruel or atrocious, at the bidding of his chief. He is said to have cut off the hands of Mrs. Montgomery after her murder, for the purpose of procuring the rings upon her fingers. [P. 6.]
