This article, a continuation of the article published in the October 23, 1867, issue of the Democrat, discusses the grand council between the U. S. government and representatives from the Cheyenne, Arapaho, Apache, Comanche, and Kiowa Indian tribes. The article also includes transcriptions of the speeches by Senator Henderson and Satanta, a Kiowa chief, in addition to brief comments by other white and Indian representatives.

This describes some of the proceedings at the council meeting, and by giving speeches from both sides the article illuminates the Indian perspective. This would work well when grouped with the Harper's Weekly illustration of Medicine Lodge and the other newspaper accounts published in the Democrat.
