Notes
Content: Printed on border: "Sargeant Kennedy was the last to die of Major Elliott's entire comand of twenty men. A crowd of exultant savages quickly surrounded him, determined to take him alive and reserve him for all the horrors of torture. Realizing this he saw that his only hope of escaping such a terrible fate was in exasperating the Indians to kill him at once. Seeming to surrender, he advanced toward the Chief, who approached him with hands thrust out, exclaiming, 'How?' 'How?'. Quick as thought Kennedy ran his sword through the Chief's body. One instant of terrified surprise on the part of the Indians and then Kennedy fell, his body riddled by twenty bullets. The merciful death had come to him."
