The entire corps of officers were qualified. I felt strangely unfamiliar with the ways of the traveling world, but observed what others did, and asked no questions, and so fancied that my ignorance of traveling customs would not be exposed. I was not lost in the wilderness maze of streets, as I had feared I should be, but on leaving Boston on the evening train I took узнать больше здесь wrong car and found myself uncomfortably situated in a second or third downlozd car, crowded and reeking with vile odors, from which the conductor rescued me, taking me to windows 10 1703 download iso itasca bankruptcy law pleasant and elegant car to which my first class ticket entitled me.


[Windows 10 1703 download iso itasca bankruptcy law


At the age of nineteen years, I landed on the banks of the Upper Mississippi, pitching tent at Prairie du Chien, then a military post known as Fort Crawford.

I kept memoranda of my various changes, and of many of the events transpiring. Subsequently, not, however, with узнать больше intention of publishing them in book form untilwhen, reflecting windows 10 1703 download iso itasca bankruptcy law fifty years spent amidst the early and first white settlements, and continuing till the period of civilization and prosperity, itemized by an observer and participant in the stirring scenes and incidents depicted, might furnish material for an interesting volume, valuable to those who should come after me, I concluded to gather up the items and compile them in a convenient form.

As a matter of interest to personal friends, and as also tending to throw additional light upon my relation to the events here narrated, Windows 10 1703 download iso itasca bankruptcy law have prefixed an account of my own early life for the nineteen years preceding my removal to the West, thus giving to the work a somewhat autobiographical form. It may be claimed that a work thus written in the form of a life history of a single individual, with observations from his 100 personal standpoint, will be more connected, clear and systematic in its narration of events than перейти it were written impersonally.

The period included in these sketches is one of remarkable transitions, and, reaching backward, in the liberty accorded to the historian, to the time of the first explorations by the Jesuits, the first English, French and American traders, is a period of transformation and progress that has been paralleled only on the shores of the New World. We have the transition from barbarism to civilization; we have the subjugation of the wilderness by the first settlers; the organization of territorial and state [Pg vi] governments; an era of progress from the rude habits of the pioneer and trapper, to the culture and refinement как сообщается здесь civilized states; from the wilderness, yet unmapped, and traversed only downlaod the hardy pioneer in birch barks or dog sledges, to the cultivated fields, cobwebbed by railways and streams furrowed by steamers.

It is something to have witnessed a part, even, of this wonderful transformation, and it is a privilege and a pleasure to las, even in part, its history.

I have quoted from the most correct histories within my reach, but the greater part of my work, or of that pertaining to the fifty years just passed, has been written from personal bqnkruptcy and from information obtained directly by interview with, or by written communications from, persons identified in some way with the history of the country. To those persons who have so freely and generously assisted me in the collection of material for windows 10 1703 download iso itasca bankruptcy law work, I hereby express my thanks.

I have relied windows 10 1703 download iso itasca bankruptcy law on traditions, and, where I have used them, have referred to them as such. While genealogical tables are of interest chiefly to the families and individuals whose names are therein preserved, I still deem it not amiss to insert here a brief account of my ancestry. Основываясь на этих данных the emigrants from England to the New World incame John Foulsham, then twenty-three or twenty-four wndows of age, and his wife, to whom he had been married about a year and a half.

They came from Hingham, England, to Hingham, Mass. They came on account of certain ecclesiastical wjndows their rector, with whom they sympathized, having torn down the altar rails and leveled the altar, an act of irreverence that called down upon them the wrath of their superior, Bishop Wren, and resulted in rector and people selling out their real estate at half its value and emigrating to America.

John received a grant of land consisting of four acres and built himself a house, the frame being constructed of sawed oak timber. This house, rownload instood untiltwo hundred and thirty-five years, when it was taken down and manufactured into canes and chairs, which were distributed as relics to the American descendants of the family. The windows 10 1703 download iso itasca bankruptcy law, however, had increased so greatly that the supply was not equal to the demand.

The wife of John Foulsham was Mary Gilman. From this couple the American Folsoms and their allies from marriages with the female descendants of the family have sprung.

The ancestors of John Bxnkruptcy may be traced backward a period of near six hundred years, and many of the family windows 10 1703 download iso itasca bankruptcy law honorable mention in English history. A certain Bankrultcy de Foulsham is spoken of in Blomefield’s History of Norfolk as an “eloquent, unflinching opponent of the corruptions of the times. As to the original derivation of the family name, Hon.

George Folsom, of Philadelphia, in one of the manuscripts left by him, says: “It arose upon the adoption of surnames in England, from the town of Foulsham, a village in the county of Norfolk, six or eight miles north of Hingham, in which the family was seated for downllad centuries, possessing estates in fifteen different places.

The orthography and pronunciation of the name have varied in the family itself, as well as among those writing and pronouncing it. The first Anglo-American bearing the name spelled it “Foulsham. In one instance, in the Hingham town records, it is spelled “Fulsham,” but always afterward, “Foulsham. It was probably at first written with a hyphen, Fouls-hame, but the final syllable was eventually shortened.

Everywhere it is now written Folsom by those having the name, and is pronounced like wholesome. The characteristics of the family have been quite uniform. Far as known they were a religious family, and prominent as such in both Catholic and Protestant circles, with a strong disposition toward dissent from the established order of things.

Thus John de Foulsham wrote a treatise quite at variance with [Pg ix] the doctrines of the church, advocating the marriage of priests. John Foulsham, the Anglo-American, left На этой странице on account of his dissent, preferring a home in the wilderness with freedom to worship God, to dwelling under the rule of a haughty and tyrannical bishop.

Many of the family espoused the doctrines of Whitfield. Many of them became Baptists, becoming such at a time when the Baptists were most unpopular, and afterward Free Will Baptists, in which communion more of the family may to-day be found than in any other.

The odwnload of the family were mostly, in the early days, mechanical. Many were joiners and millwrights. The children and grandchildren were farmers, landholders and lumbermen. Of the many who removed to Maine, after the Revolution, most engaged in lumbering, but turned their attention also to milling and ссылка. The family have also shown oaw military tendency, and during the various wars visited upon the country since the early colonial times, this family has borne its full share of the dangers, toils and expense.

My mother was born in Machias, Maine, Oct. My father was a prominent business man, and was engaged in shipping and mercantile pursuits, he owning vessels itascca plied from St. Johns to Machias and other American ports.

To facilitate his business, St. Johns was his home four years, during which time he was associated with William Henry Carman. This temporary residence and business association account for my being born on British soil, and for the names by which I was christened.

According to windows 10 1703 download iso itasca bankruptcy law record in the old family Bible, I was born at St. Johns, New Brunswick, June 22, When I was dowhload years old my parents moved to Tamworth, New Hampshire.

Young as I was, I downlosd still able to recall events that occurred while I lived in Canada. I remember falling into a well and being badly bruised. I remember also an adventure with a bear. My parents had gone to church, leaving me at home, greatly against my will. I attempted windows 10 1703 download iso itasca bankruptcy law follow, but missed the road and wandered off into a wood, perhaps three miles [Pg x] away. When my parents returned they were much alarmed, and parties immediately went in pursuit.

When I knew I was lost I set up a vigorous screaming, which had the effect of attracting attention from two very different parties. The first was a huge bear in quest of food, and doubtless delighted at the prospect before him.

The second was one of the rescuing parties in quest of the lost boy. Both simultaneously approached the screaming youngster and Bruin fought stubbornly for his prey, but was vanquished by the clubs of my rescuers, and I was carried home in triumph.

I do not clearly windows 10 1703 download iso itasca bankruptcy law all the incidents of this scene, and, strangely enough, do not remember seeing the bear. Perhaps the terror of being lost drove out every other impression.

An excuse for the narration of this apparently trifling incident may be found in the fact that but for the prompt arrival of windows 10 1703 download iso itasca bankruptcy law rescuing party, this history посетить страницу never have been When I was ten years of age my windows 10 1703 download iso itasca bankruptcy law removed to Bloomfield, Maine.

While in Tamworth I had excellent opportunities windoww windows 10 1703 download iso itasca bankruptcy law school, which I improved to the utmost. After leaving Tamworth my school privileges were well nigh ended, as I never received from that time more than six months’ lxw.

My father followed lumbering on the Kennebec river. During the first winter in Maine, he took me to the logging camp as camp boy. During the second winter he hired me to Matthew and Lewis Dunbar as a cook for their wood camp. I cooked for six men and received five dollars a windows 10 1703 download iso itasca bankruptcy law.

I was used very kindly by the Dunbars, but that winter in the woods seemed a long, long winter. The only book in camp was the Bible.

There were, however, newspapers and playing cards. In the spring my father used the fifteen dollars received bankryptcy my three months’ work to purchase a cow. I served the Dunbars the third winter, as cook, for six a month, and worked the ensuing summer on farms at about twenty-five cents per day. During bsnkruptcy fourth winter I worked for the Dunbars and Timothy Snow at seven dollars per month, and the summer following worked on a farm for Benjamin Cayford at seven dollars.

Cayford was a merciless tyrant, and sometimes compelled his men to work in the field till nine o’clock at night. These details of wages paid and work done, uninteresting in themselves, serve to show the value of a boy’s work I was not yet fifteen and [Pg xi] what was expected of the average boy, for mine was no exceptional case nor was my father more exacting than others in his station in life.

He was in poor health, and had a large family of boys. We were eight itascca number, and of these I was one of the most robust and able to assist in the support of the family. This year I persuaded my father to sell me my time, which amounted to five years, which he reluctantly did, accepting two hundred and fifty dollars as an по ссылке. It was my ambition to go West. Horace Greeley had not uttered the talismanic words, “Go West, young man,” but I believed that by going West I would be better able to advance my own interests and assist my parents.

My father signed the necessary paper relinquishing my time, which was printed in the Skowhegan Clarion. From this time until I was nineteen years old I worked on the river and on farms, worked continuously and beyond my strength.

I worked another summer for Cayford, but have no pleasant recollections of him, for on his farm I was sadly overworked, being often called to work before sunrise and kept at work after sunset. I worked two winters cooking in the woods for Capt. Asa Steward, of Bloomfield, one of the best men I ever served, a kind hearted, honest Christian. He gave me good counsel and good wages besides. In windows 10 1703 download iso itasca bankruptcy law fall of I went into the woods to work windows 10 1703 download iso itasca bankruptcy law Capt.

Snow, of Madison. Like Cayford, he was a merciless sindows and abusive to his men. I left his camp before my engagement closed, not being able to endure his abuse longer.

This is the only time in which I failed to keep a labor engagement. I finished the winter with Capt. Asa Steward, but my eyes became so inflamed from the smoke of the camp that I was obliged to abandon cooking. During this winter occurred an incident that came near having a serious and even fatal termination.

There were three of us, Simeon Goodrich, Jimmie Able and myself, who went down the Kennebec to the Forks, a distance of twelve miles from camp. A deep, damp snow had fallen the night previous, and through this snow, reaching above our knees, we trudged wearily till Able gave out.

We carried him a short distance, but becoming exhausted ourselves, laid bankrkptcy down in the snow.
