Tecumseh

Letter from E. B. Brown to Gen. Joseph Brown

The Great Western Stage Company, with a line of four-horse post coaches running from Detroit to Chicago was established in 1830, and surprised the western world by carrying passengers and mails 288 miles in four days, (if the roads were in good order), and thus step by step the infant colony grew into manly proportions.
The erroneous idea commonly held that the interior was an impassable swamp was corrected, and the territory grew into a state, taking rank with the sister states of the Union. Many years had passed before I recognized the great work that had been accomplished by the pioneers of Michigan. It would require volumes to record the incidents of this pioneer life as they crowd upon the memory.
