day was conversant. Hence, his nosegay expressed, in the order in

A TOUR THKOUGH INDIANA IN 1840 379



NOTE

ON his way home from New Albany, happy in his
engagement to Miss Caroline Hunter, Mr. Parsons
left the boat at Cincinnati and went to Oxford, Ohio,
to visit some relatives from Maryland, who, he
heard, had gone there soon after the War of 1812,
the same relatives whom his cousin Jonathan had
joined after leaving the Wabash country. While
here, he suddenly sickened and died, whether from
some epidemic disease or from some physical weak-
ness aggravated by the hardships of his long journey
is not known. Had he lived, his education, his na-
tive brilliancy, his charming personality, would cer-
tainly have insured him success and position. The
Diary, recently brought to light, is all that remains
of his papers.
