Shawnoe Indians

Western Spectator, December 14, 1811

Some people of our city have taken no small alarm on account of a number of Shawnoe Indians hunting in this vicinity, some of whom were in town yesterday. As they have with them their squaws and papooses we believe there is no cause of apprehension on their account. When asked why they do not go and fight with the prophet, they answered toh! he bad man. A considerable number of them are hunting within sixty or seventy miles of this place.
