ten and twelve Delaware Indians, arrived in
Parowan in a state of starvation ; one of his
ten had filen dead from his horse the day
)revious, and several more mnust inevitably have
shared his fate had they not had suceor th:Lt day.
They reported that they had eaten twenty-seven
broken down animals: that when a horse or
mnile could go no further, it was killed ard
divided out, giving onte-half to the Delavares,
and the other to the Colonel and his men t le
hide was cut in pieces and east lots for. After
the boies had beeii made into -,oap, they were
burned. and carried along liv the men for iunche

into soap, togetlher with the f-et and eyes ; thus
