This was the end. This is how England subjected our little folk with most horrible methods. But one day the days of the reevnge will come. I don't know when. But so much blood can't be flowed for nothing. So many tears weren't cried for fruitless. We were just a small and weak folk. Big and powerful folks will stand up agains the british tyranny.
