Prisoner confessed that he had been in three battles and fired at white people, " but never took good aim;" that he belonged to the Soldier's Lodge. David Faribault testified that he heard him say that he had shot a messenger (Richardson) going to the fort. He said that he did not kill any one. If he had believed he had killed a white man he would have fled with Little Crow. He said the witnesses lied about him.
