Payta-Kootha, or Flying Clouds, better known among Americans as Captain Reed. He is a Shawanee of the Chilicothe tribe, but was born among the Creeks. Although considered a brave man, he has never gained any distinction as a warrior, but is a very good hunter. He is a surly, bad tempered man. His ears render him remarkable--the outer cartilages being cut, were long ago wrapped with brass wire. The weight of the wire distended the cartilage, and there they hang, as convenient to the owner as ornamental. [Pp. 20-21.]
