This man is well known throughout the northern part of Michigan and Illinois, his people having formerly occupied and owned the soil in that region. During the late war, he was one of the most prominent actors, and one of Tecumseh's counsellors and aids-de-camP. He says he was near Tecumseh when he fell, whom he represents as having been stabbed through the body with a bayonet by a soldier, he seized the gun with his left hand, raised his tomahawk and was about to despatch him, when an officer wearing a pistol from his holster and shot him. He and the remaining few of his people reside with the Potowatomies, near Council Bluffs, on the Missouri. [P. 20.]
