While at work upon Lord Talbot's Welsh estates in 1795, he became attracted by a 'convinced' Friend, named Ann Wood. The interesting discovery that both had a passion for nuts, together with the gentle match-making of a Quaker patriarch, led to an engagement, and the couple were married in December, 1796.

The next morning the whole family attended meeting at the neighboring Quaker meeting-house, in the preparation for which, and the various special occupations of their "First-day" mornings, the unsuspecting parents overlooked that inevitable change in the faces of the lovers which they must otherwise have observed.

It is known as the Old Province line, and it can be traced on any map of the State by prolonging, in both directions, the northeastern boundary of Burlington County. West Jersey, which became decidedly Quaker, did not remain long in the possession of Lord Berkeley.

Just at this time, in one of the underground railway stations, six miles north of the Ohio, an old Quaker was saying to Josh: "Lie still, thee'll be perfectly safe there. Here comes John Trader, our local slave catcher, but I will parley with him and send him away. Thee need not fear. None of thy brethren who have come to us have ever been taken back to bondage.

And the Quaker himself would be in the way, as it would be necessary that he should have some preliminary interview with Marion before anything could be serviceably said to her father.

Will not his opinions and manners be drowned as it were in the torrent of the opinions and manners of the rest?

Jeff was the determined one on this score. "Of course they haven't any marriage ceremony or service, but we can make it a sort of Quaker wedding, and have it in the temple it is the least we can do for them." It was. There was so little, after all, that we could do for them.

That night they camped on the North Fork of the Catawba, and next day they went down the river to Quaker Meadows, McDowell's home. See also Gates MSS. Letter of Wm. Davidson, Sept. 14, 1780.

She seemed quite reluctant to fix the day, but at last consented; and says David, "I thought if that day come, I should be the happiest man in the created world, or in the moon, or anywhere else." In the mean time David had become very fond of his rifle, and had raised enough money to buy him one. He was still living with the Quaker.

Thou didst talk to the robins as if thou didst understand their song. And the beady-eyed squirrels how they would stop and listen." "I made a robin's song on the spinet quite by myself, one afternoon. And the dainty Phoebe bird, and the wren with her few small notes. Do you know, I think the wren a Quaker bird, only her gown is not quite gray enough.
