2: <His suits were finally decided against him, and he was cast out of the possession of all, or nearly all the lands which he had looked upon as being indubitably his own. The indignation of the old pioneer can well be imagined, as he saw himself thus stript, by the quibbles and intricacies of the law, of all the rewards of his exposures, labors, sufferings and dangers in the first settlement of Kentucky. He became more than ever disgusted with the grasping and avaricious spirit -- the heartless intercourse and technical forms of what is called civilized society. But having expended his indignation in a transient paroxysm, he soon settled back to hbis customary mental complacency and self-possession. . . . He sighed for new fields of adventure and the excitement of a hunter's life.> FLINT1:176-77
