Chaplain at Fort Laramie' describes the
funeral as follows in a letter to the wri
ter of this sketch :
THE CHAPLAIN'S STORY.
It is now over 10 years since the
death of Monica, as she was called, and
many of the interesting facts connec?
ted with her sad story are forgotten. I
was then chaplain at Fort Laramie, and
one day in February a messenger
arrived and announced that Spotted
Tail, with a band numberiug 300, was
ob the other aide of the North Platte
river, with the body of his daughter,
which he had brought from the Powder
river country, 15 days travel, aud desir?
ed to bury on the hill near the fort.?
Gen. Maynadier, then in command,
went with his officers to the river bauk
and met the funeral cortege. The
warriort advaticcd in rci;ular procesi?n
bearing in their midst the body of .he
Princ?ts, and chanting a funeral dir^rc,
which wat low and mournful iu the
extreme. We joined the procession
and marched to the fort to what is
known as "Bedlam Quarters," where
the body was laid in state. The room
had bean hastily decorated with flags,
mutkett. and sabres. All the principal
men of the place were present, and the
crowd of Indians and soldiers not oniy
filled the spec? inside but the porch
and grounds outside. General May*
nadier made a sncech of condolence,aud
welcomed Spotted Tail to the post.
The chief replied in Sioux, and his
speech was very beautiful even as im?
perfectly interpreted in our language by
Charles Gareau. I remember it nffected
every one present. Among other
things Spotted Tail said. "I am sad,
but when I look around at this beauti?
fully decorated room and sec many
k iid aad sympathetic white faces I feel
comforted. It seems to me like a
dream, but I have only to look out of
thai window and see the sun shining and
hear the winds blowing, aud I know it
must be a reality." He then stated
t.iat though he hsd been on the war?
path against th? whites; he desired new
to be at peace witlt them forever,
gave the history of his daughter's de
and .--?aid her last request was to

daughter's suffering* and the event
journey of lifleeu days with her lx
through ?now and storms, tlid* old ch
wa9 very much affected, and all ey
were moist. At the close of Spot
Tail's remarks General M aynad
arose and made one of thejmost .?Tppr

General proposed to bury Monica in i
post cemetery and have the Christi
burial services performed over I
corpse, the chief was very much gratifl
and his followers expressed their a
probation by frequent and deep guttei
expressions of'"Ugh," Ugh."
The body of the girl was wrapped
Ituffalo robes, and bound about wi
cords. Gen. Maynadier ordered t
carpenters to prepare a scaflold ai
coffin, and when all was in readiness i
ambulance was sent for, and just h
fore sunset, en a clear and bright b
bitter cold day, the body of Monica w
brought out. aud Indians, officers at
soldiers, forming a procession march
to the grave. At the scaffold tl
coffin was opened, and the officers Olli
it with gauntlets, gloves, moccasin
red flannel, and clothes to keep tl
dead maid?>n comfortable on her jou

burial service, accommodating my r
marks to the Indian superstition.

and that they would soon meet hi

I wept bitterly, while the father chief oft?
[ wiped hit eyes, and at the close of eac

After her death Spotted Tail often
spoke of his daughter Monica, and stil
