Once while awaiting the return of Joseph who had rowed to Napanee for flour the widow was visited by Joe Skunk, an Indian, who asked in broken English for bread. The widow, considering her destitution and the want of her children burst into tears and told him in the best Indian language at her command that she had no bread and that she and her papooses were starving. Joe replied 'you very good squaw'. He walked down to the shore and taking his spear stuck it into the hard of a large muskelunge lying inthe boat and throwing it out on the shore he called to the papooses to come and get the fish. Stepping into his boat, he paddled away"" from page 49 of The Tobey Book.11
