5. The Night of the surrender and after they had given up their arms and all war material and had received rations the Indians had a dance to which they invited Capt. Pratt and his interpreter Phil McCusker. The incidents of that dance are among the most vivid in my memory. There were 72 lodges and about that many warriors beside their women and children, about 200 in all. I had eight Indian scouts, the interpreter, two wagons with colored teamsters and three tents.
