On Ancestry.com, I read a letter from James Pitman delivered to Arthur, who said that his Dear sister Mary had died, that she suffered from Arthur's hands (rejection after she was scalped)..Here is a letter I copied and pasted.

Neal Arter Alford McFaul Sir, Blessens be pon ye in respect and regret fer sistir Mary Jane an uv dayz passed on. Me ben old and redy to gret the gate: I hur bi ofer a lettr ov fergivens fer mi hellborn ways I lashed pon ye Ben I wuz watchn mi der sistir suffr herts undr ye hands Sir aftrr the injn scalp her hed. Them injns wuz diservon uv dith fer that I thank ye Sir. I wuz wishin ta kil ye for takn Teekena and for pushn forthwith awa mi Mary. I herbi fergive ye Sir. James Pitmaní
