    Notes 
    • SOLOMON COPP

      Solomon Copp used to bring his provisions (Indian meal chiefly),the first year or two after settlement, on his back all the way from Canterbury, and in a few instances even from Concord. On one occasion, being belated in starting for Concord, and finding himself and family brought to a very short allowance, he was at a loss what to do, when a small dog in his possession, by rather more than his customary "yelping," informed them that he had treed some game. It was found to be a bear cub, which was soon shot, brought in, dressed,and devoured with the utmost relish, though without potatoes or bread, thus giving Mr. Copp new strength and courage for the long journey before him! Other members of Mr. Copp's family used to share this labor with him; and once when his son Thomas, few years later, was returning from Canterbuy with his bushel of corn meal, overtaken by extreme darkness, when not even the stars could be seen above the high tree-tops, he was startled by a loud snorting in the path before him, accompanied with a sharp, snapping noise, as of teeth. He was too much frightened at first to speak; but afterwards, by dint of his stout hallooing, the probable bear was induced to move farther and farther from the path, till a last he ventured by in safety, -- slowly and carefully at first, and then as fast as his weary legs and heavy load would allow him!
