<The great object of the Colonel appears to have been to live as remote as possible from every white inhabitant, except those of his own family; insomuch that he had been heard frequently to declare that he would never consent to live within 100 miles of a d----d yankee!> When <the enterprising adventurers of New England penetrated even to within a few miles of his secluded retreat in that quarter [it] induced him once more to "pull up stakes" and to remove with his family (in the 80th year of his age) quite to the Missouri.> WILDER:31
