TITLE: A New humorous song, on the Cherokee chiefs
To the tune of Caesar and Pompey were both of the horned, by H. Howard.
A broadside comprising seven verses in letterpress below an engraving,
representing three Red Indian Chiefs in their national costumes; these men are named,
"The Stalking Turkey", "The Pouting Pidgeon", "The Man killer".
This satire refers to the arrival in London of three chiefs of the Cherokee Nation, on an embassy
to the Court of George III, and the impression these envoys produced on the English is described in the verse.
