signing the pledge, are to their own
>vny protecting themselves when under

(among other things a trading post for
the Semlnoles), the story Is current
that these Indians always paddle down
the Miami river In pairs; that they do
their trading, deposit their surplus cash
with a certain merchant of tried hon
esty. and then go off fo r a debauch, one
jn the first day and the other the next,
the sober fellow refraining from even
i drop of "flrewuter” until his brother
