Oct. 5, 1892.
...schools filled to over 70 pupils in attendance. The Cheyennes came in
large numbers for a talk with me. 5 Companies of "Dog Soldiers" being
present a part of whom came mounted and drawn up in line firing Winchesters
into the air( in demonstration of joy, I suppose). Among their first
questions was, " Are you afraid?" I said "No". Short speeches were made by
No-com-is-tah, Red Lodge, Whirlwind, Little Medicine, Little Big Jake,
Howling Wolf, Little Man, Medicine Crazy, Roman Nose Thunder, Left Hand
Woman, White Horse, Man-on-Cloud, and Star. The burden of which was
self-praise for their conduct, request for a feast, and to ask that beef
issues be made weekly hereafter( in recognition, I suppose, of their
distinqished favors, they ask me to write their speeches.....I gave them a
small feast from the commissary and will send a copy of the speeches later.
Some of the whites think I need not have received them in council. There was
no real use, but for peaces sake I listened patiently, and they went away
pleased. I believe that all the new scholars reside in the Sub-Agency.
