form6 une ligne formidable, comptant plus de quatrevingt mille
guerriers, et comprenant toute s les nations sur les frontieres de la
civilisation, depuis les Dahcotahs (Sioux) du Mississipi, jusqu'
aux Pawnees et aux Comanches du Rio Colorado.
Je ne saia pas jusqu' a quel point une reaction si terrible pourrait
Store desirable pour le bien 8tre de 1' humanit6, mais dans tous les
cas, j' ose Monseigneur, vous adresser une demande: "si le Texas
est annex aux Etats-Unis, et si les Indiens de 1' Onuest du Mississipi
se 16vent en masse dans le but d' une guerre d' extermination, leur
serait-il permis par le Gouvernement Anglais de traverser les fron-
tieres des hautes provinces du Canada, pour s' y procurer de la
poudre et des armes, et s' y r6fugier momentan6ment en cas d' une
d6faite dans le territoire de 1' Ioway.
Je suis jeune, Monseigneur, mais j' ai la Confiance des Nations
Indiennes, et si je puis leur donner une reponse affirmative au
sujet de la question que je viens de vous soumettre, jamais le
Gouvernement de Washington ne possedera, de facto un pouce
de terrein, au delay dela Rivi$re Sabine.
