In this he says vie 2iad gone out to the barn and Barnstead and i were helping or. Tray Lur hitch up his horses. All of a sudden two men came Riding up Ute Road at a fast Trot and turned in and come straight toward us and pulled up by the Wagon Tine of them was a slim red cheeked Young Feller about Twenty three years old. He wore top Boot and spurs and a bread Bri turned Black hat and gloves and a fur Waistcoat and party Linen. He looked at the tires of the Wagon and said a that a the one we be Quot a which of you is Samson Traylor a asked. A a i Ara said Traylor. A the Young Feller jumped off his hours. And tied him to tile Fence. Then he went up to Traybor and said Quot la a did you do with my niggers you dirty sucker a a men from Missouri hated the to s folks them Days and called suckers. Halt r you a Little reckless Young Feller 1 Traylor said As Cool As a eur Uili r 11 i up nigh to. Am door which Grimstead had closed it a he Wagon out.

You it Ive Ita a the Man and a Hook i with the Law. Quot or. No Kies Rode close to the woodshed and looked up a him. A my brother i fear you be not a ? Brittsan he said. Quot he swore at the minister. That a a a cities him. Quot i reckon he better stay thar till he gits a Little of clods Grace in his soul says the minister. Quot then he says to the dog Tonto von keep in right thar a eth dog appeared to understand what was expected of him. A the minister got off his Boss and hitched him and took off a coat and put it on the ground. A a a what you going to do i says. A a a me says the minister. 1 be coins to Rassle with satan for the soul o that a Man. An if you keep watch i reckon you see a at the ground la be scratched up some a fore i git Quot he loosened his Collar and in it on his coat and began to Pray that the Man s soul would see its wickedness and repent you could have heard him half a mile away. Quot or. Traylor drove off with the damaged slaver settin beside him and the Saddle hoes hitched to fhe rear Axle. I see my Chance and before that prayer ended i had got the fugitives under some Hay in my Wagon and started off with them on my Way to Livingston county. I could hear the praying until i get Over the Hill into Canaan j barrens. At Sundown i left them in Good hands thirty Railes up the in a Frontier newspaper of that time it is recorded that the minister and his dog kept the slaver on the roof All Day. Vainly trying with prayer and exhortation to convert his soul. The Man stopped swearing before dinner and on his Promise not again to violate the commandment a Good meal was handed up to him. He was liberated at Sundown and silent the night with Briu Isrl and. A who is that big sucker who grabbed my Friend a the stranger asked brim Send a this name is Samson Traylor. Comes from Vermont a was the answer. A if he Don t look our a Jelph Biggs la kill Samson spoke not More than a dozen words on his Way Bank to new Salem. Amazed and a Little shocked by his own conduct be sat thinking. After ail he had heard and seen the threat of the Young upstart had provoked him beyond his Power of endurance. The sensitive mind of the new englander Hail been Hurt by the Totory of the fugitives. Upon this Hurt the Young Man had poured the turpentine of haughty Imperial manners. The More he thought of it the less inclined he was to reproach himself for his violence. Slavery was a relic of ancient imperialism. It had no right in free America. There could be no peace with it save for a Little time. The missourians would Tell their Friend of the Lawless and violent men of the North who cared not a Fig for the property rights of a southerner. The stories would travel Uke fire dry or Folsz so swiftly tile thoughts in no Era he Bent and the the o get his pistol out Oss by the bits and we both i he Young Toller Lay on the ground shaking As if he had the ague. I to never a Man of split in a Sec Obj 1 pm Al d him up. His right Arm was broke and his face and shoulder Bruise some. Yes a a thought a steam it Nguyne Hud Blower up while he was putting Wood to it he a kind o ump and the mad had leaked out of him. A i reckon i better find a doctor a he says. A Yoa get my Wagon and ill tale be to a Good one a say Traylor. A just Hen Stephen Nuckles the circuit minister Rode in with the big bloodhound that filers him around. A the other slaver had got off his Boss in the sol image Traylor started for him. The slaver began to Back Sway and suddenly broke into a run. The big dog took after him with a kind of a lion Roar. We ail begun Yelling St True dog. We made More noise than you a hear at the end of a Boss race. It scale the Young Feller. He put on or the entry j i tar my i in a of men were being pre in red for the great Bat the. Nes of rile future. Samson saw the Peri of it. As they Rode along Young or. Biggs complained of pain and Samson made a Sling of his Muffler and put it Over the neck and Arm of the injured Biggs find drove with rare to avoid jolting. Fur the first time Samson took a careful and sympathetic look at him. He was a handsome youth about six feet tall with dark eyes and hair and a Small Bisk Mustache and Teeth very White and even. Neon took him to doctor a hunks office and helped the do Ting the broken Bone. Then he went to Offutt a store and found Abe Reading his Law Book and gave him an account of his adventure. Quot i in bulb glad hid sorry a Aid Abe j by glad that you licked the slaver and got lit negroes out of his reach. I reckon it i have done the same if i a mild i m sorry because it looks to a like the beginning of Many Trou Bles i in w Hole subject of slavery is full of danger. Naturally Southern men will tight for their property and there is a growing number in the North who will fight for their principles. If we All get to lighting i wonder what will become of the country it reminds me of the Man who found a Skunk in his House. His boy wan going after tile Critter with a club. A a a look Here boy a he said a when you be got a Skunk in the House its a Good time to be careful. You might talc the Skunk with that club but the Skunk would be right certain to spy in the House. While he a our guest i reckon Well have to be polite whether we want to or not a that evening Samson set Down the events of the Day in his Book and quoted the dialogue in Offutt a store in which he had had a part on the Aret of february. 1840, be put these words until he had reached hoped lie that morning. The event had been too Long delayed. Encouraged by idleness and conceit and alcohol evil passions had grown rank in the soil of his spirit. Restraint bad been a thing unknown to him. He had ruled the Little world in which he had lived by a sense of divine right. He was a Prince of ego land that province of America which had Only half yielded itself to the principles of democracy. It must be said that he served his tent As a sober human being quite gracefully being a Well born youth of some education. A few Days he spent mostly in bed while his Friend who had come on from Hopedale took care of him. Soon he began to walk about and his Friend returned to St. Louis. His Fine manners and handsome form and face captured the Little Village Moat of whose inhabitants had come from Kentucky. A week after his arrival Ann Rutledge walked Over to Jack Kelso with him. Bim fled up the stick ladder As soon As they entered thu door. Or. Kelso was away on a Fox Hunt. Ann went to the ladder and called a Bim. I saw you Fly up that ladder. Come Back Down. Heroes la right Nice i Young Man come to see a is he Good-1, toking Quot Bim called. A ooh.

A i just wish there was a knot Bede in this a dome on Down Here a Ann urged. A a in a was the answer. A this Cheeks Are As red As roses and he a got a Lovely ring and big watch chains pure Gold and Vallur As a dandelion. You come Down Bim answered a be Down As soon As i can get on my Best bib and in a few minutes Bim called from the top of the ladder to Ann. The latter went and looked up at her. Both girls burst into peals of merry laughter. Bim had put on a suit of her fathers old clothes and her Buffalo skin whiskers and was a wild sight. A a done to you come Down looking Uke that Quot said Ann. A Btl go up there and tend to Ann climbed the ladder and for a time there was much laughing and chattering in the Little loft. By and by Ann came Down. Bim hesitated laughing above the ladder for a moment and presently followed in her Best Blue dress against which the Golden curls of her hair fell gracefully. With Rod Cheeks and Bright eyes she was a glowing picture. Very j j timidly she gave her hand to or. Biggs. Quot its just the right dress Quot he said. A it goes so Well with your hair. I m glad to see you. I have never seen a girl like you in my life. I m going to come and see you often of your Mother will let a Blush spread Over the girls Cheeks to the pretty dimple at the Point of her Chin. A you la see her scampering up the ladder like a Squirrel a said mrs. Kelso. A Uslie in t real tame a perhaps we could hide the ladder a he suggested with a smile. A do you play on the flute Quot Bim asked. A no a said or. Biggs. A i was afraid a Bim exclaimed. A my Uncle Henry she looked into or. Biggs eyes or. Biggs laughed. A that smile of yours is very he said. At this Point or. Kelso returned with his gun on his shoulder and was introduced to or. Biggs. Quot i Welcome you to tile hazards of my fireside a said Kelso the world bit Kelso. That very evening Ann went Over to Kelso a Cabin to take the new to Bim and her Mother and to Tell them that her father reckoned he belonged to a very Rich and a very grand family. Or. Kelso had gone to Offutt a store and the three had the Cabin to themselves. A i think he a just a wonderful Man Quot Bim exclaimed a a a but in a sorry his name is so much like figs and pigs.

A we done to know this Young Man. He a probably Only fooling Bim went often to the Little tavern after that. Of those meetings Little is known save that with All the pretty arts of the Cavalier unknown to Harry Needles the handsome youth flattered and delighted the girl. This went on Day by Day for a fortnight. The evening before Biggs was to leave for his Home. Bim went Over to eat supper with Ann at the tavern. It happened that Jack Kelso had found Abe sitting alone with his Blackstone in Offutt a store that afternoon. A emr. Kelso did you Ever hear what by Zane said about the general subject of sons in Law a Abe asked. A a never but i reckon it Woald be i Wise and possibly said Kelso.
