Miles scouts an sex Soldier named Howard who married a Niece of sitting Bull in whose Camp he lived some time reached the Tongue River Cantonment on the 17th. Howard talked with the indians regarding the Custer massacre and in consequence of his residence among and relationship with them they talked to him As one of themselves.

Wavering had been the fortunes of the Day but it was evident the advantage was with the Federal army and before our brigade went into action it. Seemed to us the Day was lost.
