Inscription.  The village had been burnt by themselves; it was now eight days since. We found nothing entire in the town except the town cemetery and the graves. It was filled with snakes and animals, a great mask with eyes and teeth of brass, and a bearskin with which they juggle in their cabins. There were in the four corners great boxes of grain which they had not burnt.

Rev. Francois Vachon de Belmont
