This letter, yellow with age, Patokape's skull* and some other reminders Of the battle, were preserved by him and are now among his effects. Last July the editor with a party of visitors called at Mr. Seeley's, and under his guidance ylsited the battle ground. He pointed out the deserted grave and the various spots where the Sioux were found, and told the story of the battle, reading the letter, which Is today the only record there is of what actually occurred. This letter, written by Dr. Collins, now for the first time printed, is as follows: In April, a year before -Fort Dodge was established, Povveshlek was chief of the Musquaqua tribe of the Sacs and Foxes— Uved In Tama county-60 warriors under Kokomah fought a party of Sioux on the Bast Des Molnes river-killed W, took one prisoner and lost four.

Mrs. Hunt, the old lady at Burt who with her aged husband was found unconscious at her home a few weeks ago, died Thursday as a result of the exposure then suffered. The facts in the case, which at first were thought to have been suspicious, were that Mr. Hunt had fallen in a fit of some kind, and that she had fainted away, both lying unconscious until found by the neighbors. She was about 80 years old. Algona will have a new school house. The election Monday did not bring out a big vote, but what there was of it was the right side. 134 for bonds to seven against.

Algona, Iowa, 17 AngwM860. ^^ Dr. Collins has the battle the .April before Fort Dodge was established, which would be in 1849 but Capt. Hewitt did not come to Clear Lake until 1851, and tradition has It that he was there the year before this battle was fought. The general opinion is that Anrll 1852, is the date. At the time or the receipt of this letter no one knew of any grave on the battle ground, as it was grown over. It was by unng a stick to find soft ground and digging that Mr. Seeley discovered the grave and the skeletons of the four Musquak- ies, just as described in the letter. The accuracy of the letter as to this Is its chief warrant to credibility otherwise.

It 5s to be hoped that she will visit Algona again, and he gives the version of- the battle in his Red Men of Iowa as related in this letter, although the letter itself was not seen by him. He says that at that time "portions of skeletons and other relics of the battle were scattered over the ground. There were bones bearing themarks of the merciless torn- ahawkT parts of skulls, pieces of pottery kegs, guns, and other articles." Mr. Fulton, hoover, accepts the story of burning the captive with hesitation. "The truth of this statement may be regarded as doubtful. It is at variance with the usual custom of the Sacs and Foxes in their treatment of prisoners.'' But the bitter hostility of the Sacs and 'Foxea against the Sioux must be remembered. Even as philosophic an Indian" as Black hawk cou,ld not speak of the Sioux except in the bitterest terms, THE UPPER DBS MOINES has already published a sketch of this battle, and reviewed the half-century feud which preceded it. It was the- last meeting Keen the Sioux and Sacs and Foxes and on that account one pf the most memorable engagements ever fought in the Mississippi valley. C. M.
