7068. PROPHET, Wabash.—

With respect
to the [Wabash] prophet, if those who are
in danger from him would settle it in their own
way, it would be their affair. But we should
do nothing towards it. That kind of policy is
not in the character of our government, and still
less of the paternal spirit we wish to show towards
that people. But could not [General] Harrison gain over the Prophet, who no doubt
is a scoundrel, and only needs his price?—
To General Dearborn. Washington ed. v, 163.
(M. Aug. 1807)
