PRINCIPAL CHIEF OF THE WACOES. This man is justly celebrated for his powers of oratory, being probably one of the greatest natural orators now living among the Indians. At the council held upon the River Brazos, he was the principal orator; and by his dignity and grace of manner succeeded in gaining the attention and respect of these wild and untutored sons of the forest, whose implicit confidence he enjoys. . . . [P. 25; entry includes a speech made by Shooting Star, the Waco chief.]
