Jack-o-Pa--the Six. A Chippewa chief. An exceedingly active, sprightly fellow--quick in his movements, ardent, and fond of his family. He had a fine boy at Find-Du-Lac superior [sic], aged about 14 years. Col. McKenney proposed to take him to Washington and educate him. Jack-O-Pa looked awhile and shaking his head, run his finger from his forehead downwards--indicating that to part from his boy, would be like cutting him in two. [P. 13.]
