"The day-by-day journal of one of the more noted of the missionaries among the Santee-Sioux, detailing his life, experiences, and adventures with the tribe, the Sioux outbreak and massacre of 1862, the butchering of a thousand whites, etc." - Heaston. Bishop Henry Whipple's eulogy on the Christian chief, Taopi, is largely concerned with the notion that peace on the frontier is dependent on the Indians' conversion. HEASTON 15:362. FIELD 702.
