Seite 214 - Children, as they gamboled on the beach; reapers, as they gathered the harvest; mowers, as they rested from using the scythe mothers, as they busied themselves about the household, — were victims to an enemy who disappeared the moment a blow was struck, and who was ever present where a garrison or a family ceased its vigilance.
Seite 160 - Near the latitude of thirty-three degrees, on the western bank of the Mississippi, stood the village of Mitchigamea, in a region that had not been visited by Europeans since the days of De Soto. ' Now, ' thought Marquette, ' we must indeed ask the aid of the Virgin.
