On looking around, he spied a young Indian beside a tree, preparing to load his gun to fire again, but having broken his ramrod, he could not get the ball down. He shook his cane at the young redskin, and made some threats. He soon found he had been shot through the body; the ball having passed through the fold of the intestines and out in front, 2 inches from the navel. Beginning to feel intense pain, and becoming weak, he feared he could not reach safety, and on a scrap of paper, wrote with a piece of lead, an explanation of his condition. He succeeded , however, in getting near Mack's ferry, where he was heard calling for assistance. He was carried to Mack's Tavern, where he was for several days deranged and unconscious. Surgeons from Buffalo attended him and he was confined for 2 or 3 months. On the return of consciousness he thought he could identify the offender. if brought into his presence. Mr. Mack had a number of Indians brought before him. He at once recognized the offender, Longfinger, about 17 years of age. He was found guilty, and imprisoned in Buffalo jail, for 30 days. Though he lived many more years, his injuries are supposed to have hastened his death.
