Is it not strange that till the last moment. A nobler child of nature, a braver man, or truer friend, never lived. May God in bis mercy save his soul! During the two davs that Logan lin gered in the agonies of death, his tent was surrounded by anxious and tearful faces, hoping against hope, that he was not so dangerously wounded as was represented, and when, at'last. it was announced that the Creat Chief was dead, a deep gloom settled over the army, as if some dire calamity had be fallen each individual officer' and soldi er. " - At the time of his death, I do not think he could have been over'40 years old; perhaps not exceeding 35. il In sta ture, he was over the middle size, and rather more full and fleshy than Indians usually are, with a deep broad chest and high, expansive forehead.

Indeed there are many, scenes that I can never forget in the severe campaigns ot iBiz and mis, the first, terminating the 22nd of Janu ary, 1813, on the bloody battle-field of the Kaisinjand the second on the fol lowing 5th of May, by Dudley's defeat, opposite Fort Meigs. left wing of the North-Western Army : under command of General Winches ter, had been lying for some weeks at " Camp No. 3, on the Maumee River, Bix mijes below Fort JJehance, at the mouth of the Auglaze, and about 45 miles above the Rapids.
