Tensquatawa--the open door, the Shawnese Prophet, brother of Tecumthe [sic]. He who led in the battle of Tippecanoe. Here again reference must be made to the history of Col. McKenny and James Hall. The life of the Prophet will be among the most interesting of all that will be given. It would be sheer injustice to offer an incident or two in a life of such a singular, and varied character. [P. 18.]
