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

by Jim Morgan

Nothing more, worthy of the reader’s attention, transpired till I was safely landed at home once more with my wife and children. I found them all well and doing well; and though I was only a rough sort of a backwoodsman, they seemed mighty glad to see me, however little the quality folks might suppose it. For I do reckon we love as hard in the backwood country, as any people in the whole creation.
