After their first offer was rejected by the Americans, the Shawnee made a second offer of negotiation which would allow the Kentuckians to remain. The negotiations concluded by specifying that the colonists could remain south of the Ohio, but must take the oath of British allegiance, to which they agreed. Then the proposal for each American to shake the hands of two Indians. "The suggestion was suspicious, of course, but it was not much more suspicious than most of the proceedings of the last three days, and the Indians so far had kept faith scrupulously. After all, they had just concluded a peace treaty." (BAKELESS:210)
