Thread Name: Origins: Ten Little Indians
Subject: RE: 10 Little Indians
My whole missing post was a speculation that the verse here presented by Wolfgang refered not to American Inians at all but seemed to be about East (subcontinental) Indians - hence all of the English references. If it's English in origin it seems far more likely that they'd be talking about (down) people in their own empire, rather than the American Indians. It is all rather gruesome, isn't it?
