TitleTrip to Lake Kee-waw-knay, 1844
CreatorWinter, George, 1810-1876
DescriptionTersely worded notes recounting G.W.'s journey, with George Adams. First night's camp at Fletcher's Lake, where they spent the evening at Fletcher's cabin. The next day, they had difficulty finding Lake Kee-waw-knay, and headed instead for Cedar Lake. References to the nature and beauty of the countryside.
Description ContinuedThat night they found Cedar Lake, with traces of old Indian settlements, and camped there. Comments on the wonderful feeling of freedom he experienced in the wild. References to Indian-related events that occurred near that lake, including the death of Sin-is-qua's husband Thorn Rob. G.W. made some sketches there. On the third day, they hunted ducks, which tasted too fishy to eat. That night was cold and windy. On the fourth day, they headed for White Horse Lake, through lovely scenery. At the lake, they met Lindsay at his log cabin; they last had met at the Council in 1837. G.W. sketched the lake. Departed for Lake Kee-waw-nay with directions from Lindsay; it is now known as Bruce's Lake. Pass many new farms on the way. They stopped at Massa's double log cabin, which had been Pepper's headquarters in 1837. After camping the night at the lake, on the fifth day they visited the old council grounds, noting changes in the area and the difficulty of locating the old burial grounds. The site of O-ga-mass' wigwam is now a cornfield. On their way back to Logansport, their horse smashed their buggy against a tree and bolted, and they had to delay for a day while the buggy was repaired by the Bruces.
