From A Chapter of the History of the War of 1812 in the Northwest: Embracing ...:

"...Elliot and McKee, two most atrocious renegades from the United States, whose presence at St Clair's defeat was made known to us after the treaty of Greenville by Indian chiefs, who asserted that they, especially the latter, tomahawked more of our soldiers, and tore the scalps from more of our wounded men than any Indian actor in that terrible conflict. "...these men...met the Indians in council...as chief agents of the British Government with royal commissions as British officers had immense influence over them."
