<Colonel Boon, although averse to the whites, was a great friend to the Indians, notwithstanding they had been his mortal enemies in the early part of his life -- it was frequently remarked by him that while he could never with safety repose confidence in a Yankee, he had never been deceived by an Indian, when he had once declared himself friendly disposed, and that so far as his own experience would enable him to judge, he should certainly prefer a state of nature to a state of civilization, if he was obliged to be confined to one or the other.> WILDER:33
