For Lack of a Better Term

Warren Foote in his journal relates how both he and his wife were sick. What terminology does he use to describe his senses at the time?
A)                 Stupid
B)                 Delirious
C)                 Senseless
D)                 Off in la la land

Yesterday’s answer:
A.      Tomahawks
It is a fact which should be remembered. . . . . the Hancock brothers, Levi, Joseph, and Solomon, with their guns guarded and fed 600 men, women, and children while camped in the woods after they had been driven from their homes. They were waiting for an opportunity to get away. I saw the Prophet marched away; and I saw, oh, the scenes I witnessed! I do not think people would believe them, so I will forbear. The howling fiends, although they wore the uniforms of the U.S., they were not to be trusted! So some of the brethren made three hundred tomahawks for protection.
