Feared by all nations because of their courage and speed of 25 to 30 leagues per day with no other food than forest herbs and leaves, they are a group of around 400 to 500 armed men divided into 3 or 4 villages, since they have been at war with France almost all nations have learned to do their hair like the Foxes. When they have a shirt, they wear it tied when they have to fight." He is extensively tattooed, has a patch of short hair at the crown of his head with a scalplock bound to stand upright. He had been a Miami captive, then transported to France to become a galley slave in 1731 but died in prison at Rochefort the following year.
