One summer in term [school] time a tribe of Indians camped in the woods on the other side of the lake, just east of Cuba. Elder Butler several times preached to them. All the boats to be had plied continually on the lake carrying the scholars and others over to see the Indians. Their visits were often returned by the red men in their birch bark canoes, in order to trade at the store, exchanging their baskets for firewater and decorative trinkets.
