I am tired of fighting. Our chiefs are killed. Looking Glass is dead.
Toohulhulsote is dead. The old men are all dead. It is the young men
who say yes or no. He who led the young men is dead. It is
cold and we have no blankets. The little children are freezing to
death. My people, some of them, have run away to the hills and have no
blankets, no food. No one knows where they are--perhaps freezing to
death. I want to have time to look for my children and see how many I
can find. Maybe I shall find them among the dead. Hear me, my chiefs. I am tired. My heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever"
