Michigan

Abel Bingham

They wanted to know if I was scared any, and if I was going to leave them. On learning I was in no wise frightened, and that I did not consider myself at liberty to leave unless called away by the hoard, they were highly pleased, and Little Beard went immediately to the village to see Red Jacket, and informed him of what I said. Jacket sent me back his compliments, and thanked me for the mild and gentle manner in which I treated the subject, and said, "probably when the board heard about it they would send for me." That day he left for Buffalo, but ordered the Tonawanda chiefs to see that I was sent off. Several days passed, and seeing I was going on quietly in my work, they called a council among themselves, and sent for me to attend it. My wife was sick, and I told them I would call down when she was better. They could not wait, but came right up and held it at my house, reproving me sharply for not obeying them, and intimating I might be abused by the young warriors if I did not. I addressed them again with mildness, and commended the mission to them.
