    Excerpt from Dick's Desertion; A Boy's Adventures in Canadian Forests: A Tale of the Early Settlement of Ontario

    The land was beautiful to look upon - Ontario scenery, marred little by the works of man in that autumn of 1820, when His Most Gracious Majesty George IV. Was king. And the log-cabin and its clearing were picturesque enough to the eye Of an artist, though speaking of all lack of skill and thrift and industry to the eye of a farmer. Even the garden in front of the cabin was being slowly and surely swallowed up into the wilderness again. The sun ¿owers ¿ourished and bloomed and seeded, forming food-stores for multitudes of birds; and the Squirrels would ¿icker down the tree-trunks and feast upon the seeds which the birds dropped, spitting the hard shells deftly to right and left through their whiskers. But the wild asters and the long convolvulus vines were choking the blossomless pinks and the sweet-williams and the few Shy English ¿owers that were left. There were only very few of these fading alien plants for the healthy native growth to smother and kill, most of them having been taken away to set upon the grave of the woman who had cherished them.
