Uncle Sam to Sitting Bull: “If you will come back peaceably, we will forgive you the Custer matter, and give you everything you ask for.”

Sitting Bull to Uncle Sam: “Don’t trouble me. You have lied to me before. You have more lies now. I shall stay here with my White Mother. Go home by easy stages—and don’t come back.”
