This man distinguished himself among his people by a daring attempt at stealing horses, in the night, from Fort Milan, on the western frontier of Texas. He succeeded in passing the sentries and had secured some eight or ten horses to a larriette [sic] and was making his way to the gates of the fort, when he was discovered and fired upon. The night being dark, the shots were at random; he was, however, severely wounded by two balls--received two sabre wounds upon his arms, and narrowly escaped with his life. He is but about 23 years of age, and by this daring feat has won the name and standing of a warrior among his people. [P. 27.]
