Tuko-see-Mathla, or the warrior who undermines his enemy. His English name is "Hicks." This man was head Chief of the Seminoles--and is the same who at great hazard saved from massacre a number of white men who fell into the hands of the war party commanded by himself, on the borders of Georgia, during the late war. He continued firm in his friendship to the whites, and adhering to the obligations of the treaty between the United States and his people, which stipulates for their emigration, rendered himself obnoxious to Oseola, the present ruling Chief in Florida, whose English name is "Powell," who to get rid of Hicks ordered his warriors to despatch him; they did so by sending sixteen bullets through him.
