"This is a fine looking man, six feet and one inch in height, and well proportioned, of manly and martial appearance and great physical strength, and is well calculated to command the respect of a band of savage warriors. He is generally known by the name of Jim Boy. Tustenuggee means warrior; and Emathla, next to the warrior. . . ."--McKinney's Work. He speaks English quite fluently, but will not converse with a man without he is well acquainted with him, and will not then speak it, in the presence of the Indians, lest he should compromise that dignity, characteristic of Indian greatness. For his interference in the Florida war, he has entailed upon himself the lasting hatred of the Seminoles: they hold him in such utter abhorrence and detestation, that they would never look upon his portrait, while in our studio, without manifesting dissatisfaction and disgust. He is about fifty-two years of age, vigorous and active, and is still able to undergo much fatigue and hardship. He is beloved and respected by his people, and one of the leading men of his nation.
