Tai-Mah. Chief of the Foxes--or the bear whose screams make the rocks tremble. How he ever got such a name no one knows. As to his physical capacity for a screamer, he had none when his portrait was taken. He was a thin, consumptive-looking, and feeble man. But he was a good man, much respected by his tribe, and especially by the whites for his humanity. He was one of the very few Indians of the group, who could not look upon blood and carnage with composure. [Pp. 9-10.]
