Title The Big Chief's Proposal
Description At that remark the Big Indian Chief whirled and walked out, muttering, "Me see, me see, me come back and see." Poor little Mary. What had she done? When the family all arrived home that evening and Mary told them of her harrowing adventure, they were in a panic. Sam was sure the old chief had times his visit when the house had been left alone with Mary, and what to do to keep the Indian from finding out Mary had lied to him was a heavy problem to them all. So George Peacock was sent for. When he heard the detailed adventure, he quickly saved the situation. He explained, "Well, we can't let the chief know he's being lied to or there would be war. There's only one thing to do. Mary will have to be my squaw. That way I can make peace and still his wrath, I am sure." And so that very night before the chief had time to return, Mary Artesma Lowry wore her sister's wedding dress and became the bride of George Peacock. - 23 -
