What did Boone feel about all this? "It was not the last time that he was to feel the ingratitude of his friends, but it was the first and perhaps the bitterest. In later years his children often repeated his stories and opinions, but to this episode they seem never to have referred. At least once Boone discussed it with a kinsman. Otherwise he kept silence." He did write a letter to Rebecca in which he denyed the charges of Toryism in language so strong that she censored the letter with her scissors; the only sentence that remained: "God damn them they had set the indians on us." "Rebecca was shocked; her Daniel rarely swore." (BAKELESS:237)
