Taylor says: "Hurra! Captain, we've got them at last, the dogs are at them--now forward with the Rifle and Bayonet and 'give them Hell Brave Boys', let not a red nigger escape--, show no mercy--, exterminate them, --this day we'll close the Florida War, and write its history in the blood of the Seminole--but remember Captn., as I have written to our Government to say that the dogs are intended to ferret out the Indians, (not to worry them) for the sake of consistency and the appearance of Humanity, you will appear not to notice the devastation they commit."
