[Hosea Stout]

This evening word came down from the Omaha hunting party that they had been attacted by the Soui and the whole band killed off except one who made his escape & he thinks another made his escape naked but has not been heard of. It is supposed that about 50 or 60 has been killed.

The Indians hear had just got the news and were making their Lemintations in all their camps[.] They would weep and howl, cry, writhe and twist and make every gesture of sorrow that could be imagined[.] They made such a noise that President Young had them stopt.
