Michigan Judges

George G Bates

That was before I served under old Brigham. I asked Sheldon, " Who are those beautiful ladies ?" " Why," he said, they are the daughters of old Boyer." He had an Indian woman for a wife and a family of accomplished and beautiful children. I admired one of these girls greatly and told her so; but she thought I had better wait a while and be sure that I was correct. These girls were sent to France to be educated, and were presented to Queen Adelaide during Louis Phillipe's reign. Eleanor, the one I so greatly admired, entered afterward the convent of the Sisters of the Sacred Heart at South Bend, where she still remains. The next day we started on our journey. Shel. McKnight was driving and let the team run away. We finally got down to White Pigeon, where I found my old friend, Tom. Sheldon, selling lands by the thousands of acres. He had some of Luke Whitcomb's whisky. I remember that well. Finally we reached Detroit.
