valley. I have had to do It two or
three times before. All I want, If
there Is any honn;- In It, Is to see that
those who are entitled to the honor.
or whatever you may
It, pet that. For myself I claim noth
ing, a n.iy of the flint. I did not
come here for bem fit. but for my own
betterment, w ho louk those chances.
In Pert Hrffrrnii's vrii-np, f
Colonel Eliaw, he makes the statement
that H. Y. J.r-any was the first .:-
Mr. Leasy never came here with
the Intention of settling here. He
was about out of provisions after
crossing the iiiulns en! it would have
been ImpowMliie for him to have set

Hny preterttons to do so. and made
