John D. Shane interview with Josiah Collins, ca. 1840s: <The emigrants from the East were so numerous, the winter of 1778-79, that they soon consumed what corn they had. The same sort of living was had, the next summer: buffaloe meat only without breat or salt. The corn raised being consumed in 1779-80 as before, the summer of 1780 was also passed on Buffaloe meat, as before. Hitherto the women couldn't get along. About 10 or 11 months after the corn of 1780 came in, that is in 1781, the women began to breed pretty fast.> 12CC68
