Bowman's attack, 1779. Captain Henry Bird to Captain Lernoult, Upper Sanduski, 6/9/1779: <After much running about, some presents to Chiefs, we had collected at the MIngo Town near 200 Savages chiefly Shawanese -- When lo! a runner arrived with accounts of the Shawanese towns being attacked by a body from Kentuck, they burn'd five houses, kill'd one Indian & wounded the Chief badly -- lost their own Commander Heron or Herington -- they carried off 30 Horses, were pursued by 50 Shawanese, the Shawanese were beat back with loss of fove or six wounded -- News flew that all the Towns were to be attack'd & our little body separated in an Instant past reassembling -- confusion still prevails -- much counselling no resolves -- many are removing -- more for Peace. The Delawares make it dangerous travelling. By this opportunity Davison & Cook return sick -- Girty is flying about -- McCarty stays with me with some Ottawas. These unsteady Rogues put me out of all Patience. I will go with him in a few days, if nothing material occurs -- see the Enemy that I may not be laugh'd at then return, -- The Rebels mean I believe to destroy the villages & Corn now up -- the method they bring their little Armies into the field as follows: Every family on the Borders receive orders to send according to their strength (one or two men) to the place of Rendezvous at a time appointed (on pain of fine or imprisonment) with fifteen or twenty days Provisions, they immediately receive their Ammunition & proceed quickly to Action -- I am credibly informed, by various means, that they can raise in that manner three or four thousand in a few days for such excursions -- I was obliged to kill four mour cattle for the Indians at the Mingo Town. They are always cooking or counselling.> "Haldiman Papers," Michigan Pioneer and Historical Society, HISTORICAL COLLECTIONS 10 (1888):336-337.

William Homan, Bobmadeer Royal Artillery to Captain Henry Bird, Lorimer's House, 8/15/1780: <Three days after the departure of Mr Lorimer, I received Intelligence of the Rebels approaching to Cheteekothee [Chilicothe].> He sought to conceal his gun (swivel?) and the smaller ordnance, shot, shells in the nearby woods. On the 13th Silver Heels, an Indian chief, came and informed him that the Americans had withdrawn after destroying Chilicothe and Piqua. Indians had killed all their prisoners before evacuating; they lost six men killed, one man and one woman taken prisoner. Rebel losses not known, but thinks two Cols. killed. <Rogers the Prisoner was missing when the Chief came away; but they harbour too good an opinion of him to think he is deserted.> [Could this be Jimmy Rogers?] <The Rebels killed the Woman by ripping up her Belly & otherwise mangling here -- they also opened the graves of the Indians that had been buried several months, and scalp'd them.> "The Haldiman Papers," Michigan Pioneer and Historical Society, HISTORICAL COLLECTIONS 10 (1888):418-419.
