Excerpt from Historical Address at the Wyoming Monument, 3d of July, 1878, on the 100th Anniversary of the Battle and Massacre of Wyoming
Instead of cities and towns, the abodes of wealth, of luxury and ease, we see only a little hamlet or two, with log houses scattered here ... and there, occupied by busy toilers winning from the willing earth in the sweat of their brows, the means of subsistence. Instead of cleared fields, stretch ing from mountain top to mountain top, dotted with fine farm houses, palatial in size and in grandeur of adornment, surrounded with large fields, finely fenced and subdued to the wish of the cultivator 'we find an almost forest waste, with here and there only a cleared spot, encumbered with stumps and brush, mostly bordering on the river.
