Text Appearing Before Image: theparty. With a number of chiefs I set out for Phila-delphia, and, after visiting the President and all thegreat people there, and by them, no doubt, thought avery good Indian, I returned to my old camp, whereI now live. Asa compensation for my services on this mission,the Indians granted me a tract of land, opposite themouth of the Kentucky, four miles in length on theriver, and one mile back. When the territory wasceded to the United States, the Indians neglected toreserve my grant. I had cultivated some parts of myland, and it was worth more than the governmentprice. It was offered for sale, and I petitioned Con-gress to secure to me what was in fact my own. Theydenied me the request, but permitted me to purchaseas much as I could at the government price! I had considered myself rich in lands, but I waspoor in cash, and my domain was reduced to abouttwo hundred acres. On this I have lived ever since;and this completes the history of George Ash. THE SIOUX AND CHIEF WAHKTAGELI. 441 Text Appearing After Image: From the Travels of Maximilian, Prince of Wied. The Dacotas, or Sioux, called by the Ojibuas orChippeways, Nandoesi, or Nadowassis, are still oneof the most numerous Indian tribes in NorthAmerica. Pike stated their number at 21,575 souls,and they are still reckoned at 20,000; nay, someeven affirm that they are still able to furnish 15,000warriors, which seems rather too high an estimate.Major Long, who gives much information respectingthis people, calculates their number at 28,100, ofwhich 7,055 are warriors, the nation possessing2,330 tents, which agrees pretty nearly with thestatements we received on the Missouri. If weadd the Assiniboins, who are of the same origin, and 56 442 THRILLING ADVENTURES. who are estimated at 28,000, we shall have for allthe Dacotas 56,100 souls, of whom 14,055 are war-riors, and the number of their tents 5,330. MajorLong is of opinion that they cannot be calculated atless than 25,000 souls and 6,000 warriors; 20,000is, therefore, not too high an estimate Note About Images Please note that these images are extracted from scanned page images that may have been digitally enhanced for readability - coloration and appearance of these illustrations may not perfectly resemble the original work.
