Title The Fence
Description Before Sunup next morning I was at the darm and had the oxen yoked ready for this work day. In that early morning light I saw movement on the hills to the east. Three persons were walking down the hills. This was unusual. Watching closely, I discovered they were three Indian squaws, each carrying a burden in her arms. As they came closer I saw that each was carrying oak limbs cut just the proper length to go between my posts. Upon reaching my unfinished fence the squaws then dropped their burdens, and without a word they turned and started back the way they had come. "I knew that Arropene had seen my need and now was showing his understanding of my problem by sending his three wives with the materials I needed. As I think about it now I know that Arropene trusted me, and I am sure I trusted him. We were friends." *Arropene Valley later became known as Funk's Lake. Today (1973) it is known as Palisade Park. 11
