Commenting on the use of anecdotes about DB's childhood (in this case, the one about putting out the teacher): <This story, which I prefer to give thus briefly, is most probably a pure creation of some writer who had run short of matter and needed the sauce of a joke to spice up the dull detail of history.> CODY:23

<Boone adopted the tactics that once before [BCAPTIVITY1] served him so admirably: instead of appearing depressed or sullen, he accepted his fate with apparent satisfaction and so conducted himself as to win the admiration of his captors.> CODY:58

Referring to Rebecca's return to NC while DB in captivity: <The tongue of calumny, too, ever ready to stir up strife, endeavored to bring about a permanent separation of these two devoted people [DB and Rebecca], but without success, though it cost them both much trouble and anguish. This is a period of Boone's life that he never mentioned to his most intimate friends, and justice to a noble reputation demands that the historian should also cover it with the mantle of silence.> COTY:61-62

Long Siege Treaty negotiations and scuffle: <This incident brought upon Boone for a time a suspicion with some that he was not at heart true to his fellow pioneers. But the injurious thought was soon dismissed, and Boone's frank explanation "that he didn't know how it happened, but he had played the great fool," was accepted as true. It was the first and the only time that the old pioneer lost even for a moment his sagacity and self-possession.> CODY:64

<When the proposal was suggested the legislature of Kentucky was in session, and one of its leading members, Mr. Collins, arose and eloquently favored the proposition in the following language: "There seems to be a peculiar propriety in this testimonial of the veneration borne by the Commonwealth for the memory of its illustrious dead; and it is fitting that the soil of Kentucky should afford the final resting place for HIS remains, whose blood in life was so often shed to protect it from the fury of savage hostility. It is a beautiful and touching manifestation of filial affection shown by children for a beloved parent. It is right that the generation that is reaping in peace the fruits of his toils and dangers, should desire to have in their midst, and decorate with the tokens of their love, the sepulchre of this Primeval Patriarch, whose stout heart watched by the cradle of this now powerful Commonwealth.> quoted in CODY:153
