He is a merchant or trader among his people; also, has an extensive farm and several negro slaves, which enable him to live very comfortably. He is much beloved and respected by his people. The dress in which he is painted is of a ball player, as they at first appear upon the ground. During the play they divest themselves of all their ornaments, which are usually displayed on these occasions, for the purpose of betting on the results of the play; such is their passion for betting that the opposing parties frequently bet from five hundred to a thousand dollars on the result of one ball play.
