On the arrival of the two chiefs and this woman at Fort Gibson, we took them to our studio for the purpose of painting their portraits. They very willingly acceded to our wishes, and manifested by signs that they wanted something to eat. We accordingly had as much meat cooked as would appease the appetite of six men, which they ate in a short time and then asked for more. We again procured about the same quantity, which to our astonishment they also devoured. It was the first meat they had eaten for some five or six days. They remained one day with us and then took their departure for Mr. Ross's. [Pp. 21-22.]
