    When asked: 'Are you willing to mention how many men you have killed, to your precise and certain knowledge?' he replied, 'I assume you mean white men, after all nobody counts Indians, or Mexicans and so forth. Well, I am perfectly willing to swear a solemn oath on the Bible, tomorrow, that I have killed substantially over a hundred.'
