James A. Haworth to Cyrus Beede, May 8, 1873
"Quoi Bird" and quite a number of Kiowa
Chiefs in council told them the Kiowas would
not have anything to do with them, and
advised them to go home and remain
at their agency, that their Agent is a
good man and would treat them Kindly.
Thomas is of the opinion that the Kiowa
influence will have a good effect upon
the Cheyennes to keep them quiet.
(6th morning) Since writing I understand
the Cheyennes have started in to their
agency, and hope it may be true. It
would be impossible for me to describe
to thee the feeling of these people as they
watch the progress of moon, and feel
that before its death they are to see
their people set at liberty, and as
