Commonly called Jim Second Eye, Head War Chief of the Delawares. . . . He speaks some English and is frequently employed by the United States and Texas as a "runner" to the wild Indians, with whom he carries on a very successful trade. He derives his name of Long Traveller from the fact that he has crossed the mountains to Oregon and has visited St. Fee [sic], California and the Navihoe Village. [Pp. 23-24.]
