"Now at this time there was a man and his name was New Voice, a chief of equal rank with Cornplanter. Now this man urged Ganio`dai'io` to accept the invitation of his friends and relatives of Onondaga. He said, 'It is as if they were stretching forth their necks to see you coming. Now I am going forth to a gathering of chiefs at Buffalo on the long strip that is the fireplace of the Six Nations, 1 the great meeting place of human creatures. I will go so that I may believe that you are. on your journey and I will ride away as fast as my horse can go.' So he said."
