Excerpt from Rose-Belford's Canadian Monthly and National Review, Vol. 7
Young man, you have come across the great Salt Lake, and found your way to my country. You have told us that it is your intention to remain here and to open an honourable trade with us, giving us such goods as we require in exchange for our furs. You further say that you intend to enlarge your trade, and to enable you to do so, you will visit your native land and carry out your intentions. During your atmenee I will think oven your proposal for my daughter, and if, when you return you are in the same mind, I will then decide as to your marriage.' Accordingly, there was no alterna tive but patience. Mr. Johnston left La Points and returned to Ireland; he sold his estate of Craig, and with the money he received increased his operations. A year elapsed before he was back at Lake Superior, when his oﬂ'er of marriage was again urged. The chief, it would seem, held that there was proof sufficient of fidelity, and his consent was given. The lady with the difficult name became Mrs. Johnston, bringing with her all the traditions of her ancient Indian line age and birth, and there is every rea son to think that no one of the parties, whose happiness was dependent on this connection, ever looked upon it but with fondness and trust.
