| "I made my appearance in the Modoc camp, Quaw-Paw Agency, Indian Territory, on the morning of Nov. 15th, 1874 accompanied by friend Tuttle - teacher of Modoc schools. As we approached the agency unheralded, we came upon a scene of civilized sport, with savage players. In front of the Agency building a game of croquet was in progress. The most dashing fellow among the players was Bogus Charley, who was dressed half-Quaker and half-Spanish. His head was covered by a broad-brimmed hat, his feet in high-heeled calf boots, with red lace at the top, and small tassels dangling on the instep, and he wore a red sash around his waist. The next one of note was Hooker Jim; this was the fellow who had but a few moments before the slaughter began on the 11th of April 1873, taken my overcoat, and informed me that he would take my hat also very soon.
Another historic character was also taking part in the game, Shacknasty Jim; and still another, Steamboat Frank, whose name stands in the list of Captain Jack's betrayers, and who made up the quartet of traitors who first drove the Modoc Chief into crimes, and who were the first to desert him, and go upon his trail, day and night, until they pointed his pursuers to his last hiding place."
