3/17/1811: <On leaving Charette, Mr [Wilson P.] Hunt pointed out to me an old man standing on the bank, who, he informed me, was Daniel Boone, the discoverer of Kentucky. As I had a letter of introduction to him, from his nephew Colonel [Israel] Grant [son of Israel and Susan Bryan Grant, she a niece of Mrs. Boone; this man killed by two of his slaves in 1835], I went ashore to speak to him, and requested that the boat might go on, as I intended to walk until evening. I remained for some time in conversation with him. He informed me, that he was eighty-four years of age; that he had spent a considerable portion of his time alone in the back woods, and had lately returned from his spring hunt, with nearly sixty beaver skins.> John Bradbury, TRAVELS IN THE INTERIOR OF AMERICA [1819].
