Notes
Statement of responsibility: "Copyright, 1905, by Glens Falls Insurance Co."--printed on image.
Content: "Not being pursued, the party camped for the night and the Indians prepared for a savage entertainment. Putnam was bound to a tree, to be tortured to death by fire. A summer shower extinguished the first fire started, but being lighted again the Indians began shouting and dancing around their victim. The suggestive yells of the war-dance were heard by the French leader, Marin, or Molang, who hastened to and through the fiendish crowd, scattered the burning brushwood which was about Putnam, cut him loose and upbraided the sullen, disappointed savages for their cruelty."--printed on verso with additional text.
