'The Kanipe collection contains two gelatin silver photographs of letters written by McDougall in 1897 and 1909, attesting to Kanipe character and reiterating that Kanipe was the bearer of a Custer's last order to "bring up the pack train" and that he was one of the last white men to see Custer alive. Brunk Auctions sold the original letter (Lot 338) on September 24, 2005. This same letter is mentioned in Kanipe's correspondence with E. A. Brininstool; Brininstool requested a copy of the letter, and Kanipe complied (see below)..... link
I speak and no one listens. Two letters written by McDougall. Kanipe was the bearer of a Custer's last order to "bring up the pack train" per McDougall. Perhaps i've made it up.
Both Kanipe and Martin were awkward to Benteen during the RCoI and were somewhat muddled up in his recall although Kanipe was not present to give testimony. Whilst Benteen had the pack train seven miles behind him, the reality was somewhat different and Martin got involved in this as he stated after the inquiry. He didn't go back to the pack train after meeting Benteen. Kanipe did. Benteen later confirmed it with the inquiry over.
Muddle sorted. Benteen CYA.
