950. WH Sat Dec. 14, 1793: From the Kentucky Gazette, of Oct. 19. We are assured by a gentleman from Green River, that a few days before he left that place, two Indians fired on a lone man, who was on horseback; one of the balls wounded him slightly across the breast, and the other when through the horses neck; the Indians after firing ran up to him, and he dismounted on the opposite side, and attempted to escape on foot, but being pursued by the Indians, one of which so closely as to convince him he could not escape, he turned on him, fired his piece, and wounded the Indian through the lower part of the belly. This so stopped him that the other came up, upon which the white man attempted again to make his escape, but being so closely pursued by the second, he was obliged to club his gun, and striking the Indian therewith, stopped him, upon which the Indian retreated; the white man pursued in turn, & the Indian, stumbling fell, and lost his knife and tomahawk, which the white man catching up immediately put him to death. The white man then went in search of the wounded Indian, but when he got in sight finding him on his feet, with his gun in his hand, prudently withdrew to some settlement near, and getting company, returned and found the wounded Indian had shot himself, and also stabbed himself with his knife, and lay dead.
