young men not to break the Treaty, but to assist one another,
in maintaining it. I saw some at the last council, that pretended
to be at peace, that are not here now. I fear they do not intend
to Keep the Treaty. I do not see any now but what, I believe,
will do as they promise. I have only to assure the Coms, and
the different tribes present, that I have faithfully kept the
Treaty and will continue to do so, arid I call upon the Great
Spirit to witness that what I say is true, and I want the other
tribes to talk the truth so that we may all understand one an-

the Falls of the Brazos, and that it would be impossible to have
it repaired and arrive, before Monday or Tuesday the 22d or
Sunday Sept 21st 1845.
The Indians assembled at the Council House this morning, and
after smoking the pipe of peace, Gen Morehouse addressed them
"Brothers. One of our council Captains is Sick-and unable
to attend this morning but his heart is with you. The talk we
had day before yesterday was good, and let us do as we say,
Here’s what’s next.
