Shinguaconse (Little Pine)
My father, you have made promises to me and my children.
If the promises had been made by person of no standing, I
should not be surprised to see his promises fail. But you,
who are so great in riches and power, I am astonished that
I do not see your promises fulfilled !
I would have been better pleased if you had never made such
promises, than that you should have made them and not performed
