Sometime just before or after the campkeepers and Findley left, came Squire Boone with Alexander Neeley with the supplies. Set up a new camp near the junction of the Red River and the Kentucky. Here "the hunters had one minor brush with the Indians, interesting mainly because it is responsible for the odd name of Lulbegrud Creek. DB, who liked to read when he had the chance, testified later that his party 'had with us for our pleasure' a book. It was GULLIVER'S TRAVELS. They were whiling away a long evening in camp with Swift's account of Glumdelick and its inhabitants, the Lulbegruds, when Indians approached. When the hunters had driven them off, Neeley remarked whimsically that they had disposed of the Lulbegruds. Amused by this unexpectedly literary aspect of wilderness warfare, they gave the creek near camp a name from Swift. It is still called Lulbegrud Creek."
