  • Griffith is taken prisoner by Shawanese near head of Roanoke River in VA. After 2 ½ years, a group of 5 Indians want to explore the sources of the Missouri River. Griffith talks them into letting him go along. The six have good rifles, six pounds of powder, six pound of lead each. When they reached the confluence of Missouri and Mississippi, the see the Missouri is very muddy, the Mississippi very clear. They travel up Missouri for 30 days (450 miles if 15 a day) to a Prairie. Some prairies are eight to ten miles across. On one they travel 3 days before getting across, and see no animals or birds and though there was an abundance of sald springs, there was not fresh water. In one area the salt springs had dried and they gathered salt (said they could have gotten bushels). The killed strange animal (9 to 10 feet high; they had seen two before; they were swift footed with neither tusks or horns (Bison? Female Moose?). After traveling considerable time through prairies, they came upon VERY EXTENSIVE LEAD MINE. They melted ore and got what lead they wanted. Then afterwards, they came upon TWO COPPER MINES, one which was three miles through, and in several places they came upon copper ore BIG AS HOUSES. About 15 miles beyond 2 copper mine, they came in sight of WHITE MOUNTAINS which they, in spite of heat, thought covered with snow. Instead of snow, they found it was WHITE SAND. After getting through the mountains, they found very fertile track of land, and they met THREE WHITE MEN IN INDIAN DRESS. Griffith understood their language, WELSH. The six took turns as spokes men and the others did not interfere. One of Shawanese was in charge. After proceeding with them four or five days, they came to A VILLAGE OF WHITE MEN. The whole nation was the same color. The men took the six through the village for about 15 miles when they came to council house. An assembly along with the king was held and the council lasted three days. Since the six were not thought to know the nations’ language, they were forced to listen. The council assumed the six were warriors or spies sent by another nation and they tried to decide with to do with them. Felling if they left them go, they’d go back t o their nation and bring others. They decided to put them to death. Griffiths felt it was time for him to speak. He addressed them in Welsh language. He told them the six were not sent by any nation, that they had no hostile intention, that they were merely curious of the source of the Missouri River, and they would gladly return to their own country satisfied with the discoveries they had made. The council and the five Indians were astonished. Full confidence was given his declaration. They immediately abandoned the idea of putting them to death and extended their utmost friendship. The group stayed 8 months in the nation, but was deterred from exploring further. The nation informed them they had explored the river 12 months journey and found it still as wide as at the place they started. Of their history, Griffith could only discover their forefathers had come up the river from a great distance, they had no books, records, writings. They intermixed with no other people by marriage; there was not a dark skinned man in the nation. Their numbers were considerable. There was settlements on the river for 50 more miles and equally along three large watercourse that fell into the Missouri. He estimated 50,000 MEN IN THE NATION CAPABLE OF BEARING ARMS. When they left and returned to the Shawanese, they had been gone two and one half years (Griffith estimated they had traveled 15 miles per day. Griffith stayed with Indians only a few months when he was able to return to VA.
