EARLY RECOLLECTIONS

BY WM. C. HOYT
June 7th, 1873

In the morning the woman told Mr. M. that she formerly lived on Walpole Island, and that her husband, who was well known on the island as -Robert John, had died a few years before. Upon a little inquiry it was ascertained that this was the same man and this was the same woman who had successfully inquired into the nationality of Mr. M. forty-seven years before, on Walpole Island; and who had shrewdly fancied that he was a Yankee because he was impolite, and that he was a Frenchman because he was an Indian and slept like a dog.
After her husband died the woman had gone to Huron Point, since called Belvidere, on Lake St. Clair, where she acquired a livelihood by the manufacture of baskets. The two women had been to Detroit, on the occasion referred to, to sell baskets; and on their way home, tired and wet from the rain, they had applied at several houses for leave to stay over night, but were refused by all, until they arrived at the generous and hospitable mansion of our venerable and esteemed friend and pioneer, whose name stands at the head of this paper.
