Last words of Chief Leschi in court: "I do not see that there is any use of saying anything. My attorney has said all he could for me. I do not know anything about your laws. I have supposed that killing of armed men in war time was not murder; if it was, the soldiers who killed Indians were guilty of murder, too. The Indians did not keep in order like the soldiers, and, therefore, could not fight in bodies like them, but had to resort to ambush and seek the cover of trees, logs and everything that would hide them from bullets. This was there mode of fighting, and they knew no other way. Dr. Tolmie and Quatlith, the red-headed chief, warned me against allowing my anger to get the best of my good sense, as I could not gain anything by going to war with the United States, but would be beaten and humbled, and would have to hide like a wild beast in the end. I did not take this good advice, but nursed my anger until it became a furious passion, which led me like a false Ta-man-u-ous. I went to war because I believed the Indians had been wronged by the white men, and did everything in my power to beat the Boston, Soldier, but for lack of number, supplies and ammunition I have failed. I deny that I had any part in killing Miles and Moses. I heard that a company of soldiers were coming out of Steilacoom, and determined to lay in ambush for it; but did not expect to catch anyone coming from the other way. I did not see Miles or Moses before or after they were dead, but was told by the Indians that they had been killed. As God sees me, this is the truth." (Leschi then made the sign of the cross, and said in his own Nisqually tongue, "Tat-te-mono, Ta-te lem-mas, Ta-te ha-he-hach, tu-ul-li-as-sist-ah, which, means, There is the Father, this is the Son, this is the Holy Ghost: these are all one and the same, Amen.) George H. Himes. pg.223 Tragedy of Leschi by E. Meeker."He said he was not guilty; that Rabbeson had lied when he said he saw him in the swamp, and that he would meet him before his God and he would tell him there he lied. He said he was miles away when Moses was killed. He said he would not be the first man that lost his life on false evidence. If he was dying for his people he was willing to die; that Christ died for others." Charles Grainger p. 249.

Life is just a stopping place, a pause in what's to be. A resting place along the road to sweet eternity.We all have different journeys different paths along the way. We all were meant to learn some things but never meant to stay. GODSPEED//REST WELL
