Quote from A Narrative of the Life of David Crockett, of the State of Tennessee.

by Jim Morgan

We passed the time quite merrily, until the company broke up; and having gotten my wife, I thought I was completely made up, and needed nothing more in the whole world. But I soon found this was all a mistake—for now having a wife, I wanted every thing else; and, worse than all, I had nothing to give for it.
