hoard a boat and proceed down the
river to St Louis, stopping along tin
way to visit historic sites.
The talk which was delivered by
Mr. Hull at the Blow residence, was
one of the lines I On Starved Rock
ever heard in this part of the state.
Mr. Hull said in part:
"i have been asked by the commit
tee in charge of your entertainment1
to make a brief statement of facts
concerning the history of this beauti
ful spot as well as a sultl' ient descrip
tion 'if its surroundings as will enable

"In the latter part of the seven
teenth century, rumors had reached
the court pf Prance of a grand and 1
noble river, lying beyond iheir most
western outposts, comparable in size
to the Bt. Lawrence and flowing thru;
a countrj of remarkable fertility; Hh,
bank peopled, in general, with sav
age tndian tribes, but, among whom,!
the Illinois, were described as affable
and humane, ready to receive instruc

itto the Dnif or California, and would '

Inquiry and selected Louis Jollet,
who had been educated as a priest,
as leader, and Father James Mar
quote, a Jesuit friar, as missionary
chaplain, to make the exploration. By
way of the Fox and Wisconsin rivers,
these pioneers entered the Mississip

of the Arkansas and on their return

that there was a more direct route to

and entered the Illinois, visiting on
their way the chief city of the Illinois
Indians, eUled 'Kaakaskta,' located
on the opposite side of the river and a
little below what is now known as
'Starved Floes.' This ended toilet's
connection wlttj the early history of
the Illinois valley, but a year later
the good Father Marquette, in ac
cordance with promises made to the
Indians, revisited the village and with
impressive ceremonies held on the
plain, opposite Starveil Rock, estab
lishes the lirst misison In the Mis

Of the Blessed Virgin.
