ver, and another man covered the Indian with a revolver.
At that movement the Indians started for the big gate, and as there was quite a number of warriors inside the fort I called my men out with their guns, for the Indians seemed determined on bloodshed. They rushed outside, and the white men followed them to where a young chief sat on his horse, just outside of the gate. There must have been a signal given to the camp above, 杭州洗浴桑拿小姐收费 for the warriors came running with their rifles in hand, until seventy-five to one hundred warriors were on the ground, while there were only about forty white men. Everybody wanted to say something, and in the confusion that followed some ten or twelve men leveled 杭州龙凤夜生活 their guns to shoot, being in such close quarters that they struck each other as they brought their weapons into position.
At that moment I sprang under the guns and
held some of them up, and forbade the men to shoot. This act seemed to please the young chief, and he commanded his men to desist. I ordered my 杭州油压按摩会所体验 men back and into their bastions, and to bar the gate. This done, I took a position in the watchtower, where I talked with their chief through a porthole, and told him that we were in a position to do them harm, but did not wish to do so, yet they must withdraw in 杭州419同城 peace and not molest our property, for we should defend it and ourselves to the best of our ability.

Then we covered with blankets a slab bridge that had to be crossed near the gates, to deaden the sound of the horse’s feet as he went out, and a clever young man by the name of Benjamin Roberts speeded away with the note to Salt Lake 杭州桑拿水磨会所全套 City.
On the 11th all was quiet. A few Indian lodges remained near our fort, and the women and children were around them as usual, so Isaac Bullock and I went down to learn what the situation was. We found some of them friendly, while others were very sulky. The main part of the Indian camp had gone down the creek, and we thought it safe to turn our stock out under a mounted guard, with one man in the watchtower to keep a lookout. About 2 p.m. the man at the watchtower sounded an alarm, saying he saw a great dust in the north; and a few minutes later he shouted that a large 杭州4197龙凤论坛 body of horsemen was in sight, coming rapidly from the north, while our horse guards were coming with our band of horses, hastening with all speed to the fort. Immediately every man was called to take a position for prompt action. I occupied a commanding place, 杭州足疗项目 giving instructions to the men not to shoot without my order, and then not unless they felt sure of making every shot tell. They were told to see th
