Draper Manuscripts: Daniel Boone Papers, 1760-1911, Series CC, Wisconsin Historical Society (Madison, Wisconsin)

John D. Shane interview with James Lane, ca. 1840s: <The [KY] Legislature passed an act, exempting Danl. Boon from an attachment for one year: that he might go & show the beginnings of surveys that he had sold; and then he had to leave the state. Had been extravagent & gotten into devt, so that he couldn't stay. 2 years after I 1st came to Ky. [1792], I passed down the Ohio & found him at the mouth of the Kenhawa [sic], and spent a night at his cabin. It was warm; Boon had some bear meat hanging in his cabin, which dripped grease in my face that night as I lay there.> 12CC56-57
