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 them ...
