Wesleyan Rev Walker visits South Creek

1822c Wesleyan Rev Walker visits South Creek where “girls out of the Native Institution, who have lately been married to the wild men, have settled”. Walker reports that “the black town” is: “exceedingly delightful…I found several huts, whose inhabitants were instantly out of doors at our approach….I went from house to house…All were pleased…I…gave one frock to a little boy who was prancing around his mother…I deemed it most prudent to address myself to the Chief first, but he seemed even the most ignorant. Indeed to all my questions, the general answer was ‘Don’t know, Sir’; and to all my explanations or illustations, I received an unmeaning assent…I shall perhaps go and live among this tribe” (Colwell, 174).
