Excerpt from Ironthorpe: The Pioneer Preacher
Axons the most agreeable things I is the delight with which, when a child, I used to listen to tales of the backwoods as they fell from lips of experience. The comfortable chimney-comer, the genial story-teller, the attentive group gathered round the roaring fire, and those wonderful, long winter evenings, which have grown so brief and unromantic since, - these images of the past are still golden in my memory; and amid the weightier occupations of life, it is even now refreshing to travel back in thought and reproduce those stories of long ago.
