State of Washington, Created from Washington Territory, which was originally a part of Oregon, and was the most northwestern portion of the republic until Alaska was purchased. It is bounded on the north by Canada. The first American settlement in the limits of the State was at Tumwater, in 1845, by a few families who had crossed the plains. Before that the only white dwellers were employes of the Hudson Bay Company. Washington Territory was set apart from Oregon by act of Congress, March 2, 1853.

er. A queer old bachelor on board, hearing me say that I should like to live in Washington Territory, said he would give me a handsome house and lot if I would live in Olympia, at which several Olympians present laughed. She left Olympia by train, en route for Portland. The conductor, Brown by name, saw the name on her valise, and claimed acquaintance, remembering her when she lived in Boylston Place. Soon after, passing a lovely little mill-stream, with a few houses near it, by name Tumwater, she consulted him as to the value of land there, with the result that she bought several acres of good bottom land. This was one of several small purchases of land made during her various journeyings. She always hoped that they would bring about large results: the Tumwater property was specially valued by her, though she never set foot in the place. The pioneer was strong in her, as it was in the Doctor; the romance of travel never failed to thrill her. Speeding hither and thither by
