Description

Chief Big Eagle is writing in his letter to Saygo asking for more supplies so he can eventually trade or sell. He states how he hasn't been out much in 5 years, the last 5 years since leaving S.D. (South Dakota?). The last place he visited was the Katonah Art Gallery. He updates that Little Eagle is doing fine, and mentions a possible younger child of the Chiefs in addition to Moonface and Shonan. He explains how he wants to visit soon to explain the meaning behind his children's Indian names.
