Report to the Secretary of War of the United States on Indian Affairs


Show Summary

When the Carriers are severely sick they often think that they shall not recover unless they divulge to a priest or magician every crime which they may have committed, which has hitherto been kept secret. In such a case they will make a full confession, and then they expect that their lives will be spared for a time longer. But should they keep back a single crime, they as fully believe that they shall suffer almost instant death."2
