For example, in Line 8, the chief emphasized how dependent the settlers are towards the tribe, and what would happen if the tribe shows the same hostility the British show them (“We can hide our provisions and fly into the woods. And then you must consequently famish by wrongdoing your friends”). The use of ‘friends’ in the line ‘fly into the woods’ is noteworthy, due to how it emphasizes how (1) the tribe’s congenial actions and aid should be enough to be considered as friends and emphasizes their hospitality and encourage; and how (2) the tribe can take away their help just as easily as they went and helped them.

He affirms that “we were allowed to skate on here until the Indians come out, and then they’d make us get off, and we’d come over here and skate- (on the rubber ice).” Though Wardecker did not seem particularly offended by this conflict, his narrative is very much the opposite of Martin and Wright’s stories.
