He says "It is not now knmcn wliere he (Iiis iug) got tliis niare; but tlicre is a tradi tion tliat he got her in Vermont ; aiul as she probably eanie froin the region where the Freeinan Messenger had been stand ing for a nuinbcr of years, the theory that she was by that horsc took its rise from that suppoed clmiiiistance" ! You scc at once that nothing whatever is here stated. The sentenee Is suggestive of nothing so niiicli as of Thad. Stevens' reply to the member who asked hini eon ccrning one who was inakhig a very long prosy spceeh. 'What docs he wantV" "He wantsbrains." Yet thls "theory" that arose from the "supjioscd uireunistanee," that there was a "tradition" thatthls niare "probably eame" from a "region" (a whole.State) in whleh the Freeinan liorse onee sioou, is ine oniy grouiKt upon whlch rests the absolute aiul uiiqualilled statemeut that thc dam of Ethan Allen was by tlio Freeiiiau Messengcr that ap- pears iu the magazlne of.lohull. Wal- laee, lilmself the autlior and llnisher of thc fraud, aud who yet clahns to bc in these matters ulthnate authority. Mr. Allen AV.

Thcy kcpt him two or three vcars at Cornwall and sold him to parties, he Ihinks, iu Mi ouri for 93000. (I.insley stales that the dam of thls Iioitc was by Voung Sir Walter, slre ot Moscow, and he by Slr Walter.) Iie ilso got a good niany colts at Cornwall. Thc Foot Horsc was a dapple hor.-e wlth 1 white lcet aml star; dam ov .Morgan Tiger, owned by Sol. llowe, Bridport. Morgan Tijrer was a son of Sherman Morgan.

A Foot bought him when 14 vears old of his lather. Abram Foot had a 11 1 1 v froiii Illaek llawk and from her he bred to l'rince a largo blaek stallion colt, whlch lt. .1. .loncs took to California at two or three vcars old. .lared A.
