This man is a brother of Gen. McIntosh, who was killed some years since by his people, for negociating [sic] a treaty with the United States Government, contrary to the laws of his country. Chilly was pursued by the same party who massacred his brother, but succeeded in making his escape by swimming a river, which arrested his pursuers. He speaks English fluently, and has seen much of civilized life, having spent much time at Washington transacting business with the heads of department, in behalf of his people. He is among the first men of his nation. [P. 10.]
