Michigan

By. H. G. Wells

for the use of the historian, a brief time will elapse and the brain that treasures the facts for history will cease to act, the mind that might have traced them on the record will have forgotten its cunning, and the little mound of earth that covers the mortal remains will never give back a date or single fact. No traveler comes back from that bourn to give you knowledge of the past. I am not the oldest man among the pioneers of Michigan, and yet I have seen and personally known every Governor of the Territory and State of Michigan from, but not including William Hull on to the present incumbent, and I propose now to give my own impressions of the men. Gen. Lewis Cass I knew some years after he ceased to be the Territorial Executive. In the canvass, when the General was a candidate for the Presidency, some zealous opponent said of him that he had held office so long that his pay drawn from the Treasury of the United States, in silver coin and placed on wagons would have required several pairs of horses to have moved it.
