rprise and great activity, seeking his fortune in the West. He went to work at once, and within a short time had accumulated by commendable effort a comfortable amount of property. Within three years he owned a farm, and a half interest with Samuel Hill in the leading store. He had good capacity for business, and was a valuable addition to that already pretentious village — New Salem.

He soon removed to Springfield, where he attracted considerable notice by his rank doctrine. Much of what he then said may properly be credited
