Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 28
PRINCIPAL CHIEF OF THE PRAIRIE BAND OF POTOWATOMIES, RESIDING NEAR COUNCIL BLUFFS. This chief is a bold and sagacious warrior, but possesses no merit as an orator; his will is submitted to his people, through his speaker, a man possessed of great powers of oratory. Many of his war exploits are of a thrilling and exciting nature; but the want of room compels us to restrict ourselves to one or two instances only, of his firmness and bold daring. . . . [Pp. 14-16; entry includes a passage on the Potowatomies Indians and a detailed description of the Indian Wa-bon-seh from "McKinney's Work."]
