The evil of bonaekeeping in tho vvooda now
cams upon m, 'jne of the rervont I brouqbt with
me died of a btlioti fever, and the other vowed r-he
would not etar among beant and aarage. She
married a pedlar who tame along one day and Icfti

9Vy thing they did m a great favor. Wu both

before. HtiU we were happy, but it ie wondcrlul lo

over lounging about the houe, begging fin icatcr
and tobacco, or teazing Greenville to head thoirex
peditiun (iint other tribe or tho white men, and
when he refuted, the.r furtoiit look frightened me
to death. We alto felt the want of aocicty, of tho
literature of the day, of the bustle mid utir of tho
Atlantic Stale. Whoti my child n born, oh,
how bitterly did I repent leaving the comfort, the
necceearie of home. In fact, uflcr aoino tiir.o, wo

In the inidal of nil thia Serena was immoveable.
Nothing milled the cronily ,f her eoul. 'i'o w ork,

She went about ntnonj; tho Indiana, and the Hiiuol

raid in her own aw'eet but decided manner 'sister,
it is my duty ; and my happiness to go.'
I helped her to put on hor Indian moccaesinn,
cloak nnd wrapper, and filled a basket of provis
ions and medicine, which fhe handed tho limn nnd
departed. I looked after her and sighed a I bo
held her ploughing through novv and mud and w it.d,
