<Urged by his friends, he had for some time been writing or dictating his own narrative in his own inimitable style. His manuscript, with various other articles, was placed in a canoe and taken down river toward Boone's fort, while Daniel himself traveled overland. The canoe struck a snag and capsized. Callaway barely escaped with his life. His cargo was lost. Boone found the labor of writing so tedious that he never tried again, though he did dictate some reminiscences to members of his family. He hoped to make a little money by publishing these, but never finished; and after his death the manuscripts were lost.> BAKELESS:390
