Title The Early Native Americans Took Care of Their Old and Useless
Description These wonen, their husbands, and Bishop Morley and his wife Sarah Ann Blackham Morley, took clean white rags and clothes and they tenderly wrapped her in these, for she had been a loyal friend. The stench was horrible! They foundr to their horror, that Humbug had made his young wife, 'Light-foot', build a high fence around Mary so she could not be seen. The whitemen carried her to an old cellar, placed her in it, then caved the whole thing in. The Natives would not go near there. They always called it 'TABOO " after they had learned she was there, and indeed it was TABOO to them, because they believed in EVIL-SPIRITS!
