DB visited James's grave in 5/74; first time he saw the body. Partly dug up by wolves. "While he was finishing, a storm broke, so violent that it was impossible to move. As he waited for it to pass, the gloom, the howling of the wind, the dreadful associations of the spot where his son had been tortured to death to amuse the savages, brought on a fit of profound melancholy which he later described as the worst of his life." Later, laying to sleep, he thought he heard Indians creeping up; he slipped away, caught his horse, and rode away. (BAKELESS:75, no citation)
