Michigan

Abel Bingham

This satisfied them. I saw Red Jacket as he passed along, and felt that I would very gladly be excused from the trial. The next day I was summoned before him at the Council House. As the old chief addressed me, there was much savage fire in his eye, and he looked me very sternly in the face. I looked him as steadily in the eye, but with a pleasant, ,cheerful countenance. He authoritatively reproved me for not obeying their voice, and said: " I will send two teams to your house tomorrow at 12 o'clock, and you may have the privilege of packing up, but go you must." When he had finished he said, " You must not speak." I told the interpreter your chiefs have said I must not speak, but I've made no promises. The next morning I took my wife and little son to school, and locked the house. At noon they came, and finding a key that unlocked the door, went in, packed my things, carried them to the settlement five miles distant, and lodged them in an unoccupied house.
