We have received a communication
from Huntley from an old traplper,
guide and scout, who for imany years
has lived among tihe lndlansa of the
northwest. He claims that ('Cuter
died lighting-that hlie lid not conllllit
sulcide-and that the lldlans did not
know him after he fell. As there ore
,rmle new loints in the letter which
have never Ibefore beetn publli1ied, uand
as we believe the writer to be sincere
in what I.e writes, we pulblish here
with a synopsis of the article. lHei
"I have Iwen requested to write the
Jo.URNAL what I know of (cneral
('uster's death, and lmy knmowhld'.e of
Wum. Cody. In 1s76 I was with 4en.

Indian laiguage, nor talk the signa
language, that I am sure of. liHe

went to the states. lie Las ihemi there
ever since, I believe. As a scout anll

that lie was killed. 'there was no
*"nla.saere," alout tile light. ('Cutter
attacked thle camp, inid got cleaneid up
through the cowardice of lteno. ;en.
Custer was a favorite with all prairie
lmen ; too good a Ilan to lie killed in
the maniner in which lhe was. For
my part, I believe Cutter wa, kilhm
in Imnttle, Iighting like a "little devil,"
and likely tell aoing lbet re thie battle
ended. "Curly" tlie only survivor, a
