"Wherever John Cavallo was, foul play might to be expected."

With this comment, Jesup warned General Hernandez to be on guard for John Horse. When Hernandez and his soldiers approached, however, it was the Seminoles who needed to be on guard. Osceola sensed the imminent danger as soon as he saw the size of Hernandez's contingent -- 250 dragoons and militia, sent for a peace parley. Osceola choked up. He asked Coa Hadjo to speak in his place.
