Kish-kallo-wa--nominally and legally the Shawnee Chief. A man of many battles and of great notoriety. He fought his first battle at the age of 17, and made himself conspicuous by his bravery; his family is distinguished; he is one of seven brothers, all renowned warriors, he is supposed to be from 86 to 90 years old, he lives with his daughter on the Kansas river [sic], his band are [sic] scattered, residing the most of them on the Sabine. The life of this noted chief, as it will appear in Col. McKenny and Judge Hall's work, will be, of itself worth the cost of many of its numbers. It is full of stirring incidents.
