This chapter describes how Bowles returned to the Gulf Coast and sought leadership of the southeastern Indians, using gifts to sway the Natives to accept him as their leader and promising them more if they accepted him. McGillivray lost prestige because of his Treaty of New York with the United States that ceded land. To increase his arms for the Indians, Bowles seized the Panton trading store in Apalache, which turned him into an enemy. José de Hevia convinced Bowles to journey to New Orleans, where the governor arrested him as a criminal. In Havana the captain general shipped him to Spain.
