Next we left the ridge and went down on the bottom to Manuel's on White Bird. We went inside the gate and looked at the ruins of the fire. A few of the soldiers strayed down to the creek and what was their surprise to see sitting in a little shed, which the Indians had spared, a white man whom we all soon found to be Jack Manuel, whom we had reported as among the killed. He had been wounded in the back of the neck with an arrow and had also been shot in the hips.
