DB and Squire linked up 7/27/70; hunted again. Squire back to settlements in autumn. Slow in returning, DB started east to met him. Went hunting again, to Green and Cumberland country. Here an amusing incident: Another party, known as the "Long Hunters" because they had been long in the wilderness, were in that area at the same time. One day they heard a strange sound in the forest. Never heard anything like it before. One Casper Mansker slipped off to investigate. Came upon DB lying flat on his back on an outspread deerskin, all alone and singing cheerfully to himself. Other stories of him singing to his dogs.
