Hale in “East and West” writes of a period a year before George Washington was made President. In Salem the belle is Sarah Parris and her admirer Harry Curwen. Curwen is the wealthy young gentleman of the period and has such elegant manners as Boston or Philadelphia imparted in those days. Sarah is a proud and independent girl and conceives the idea that Harry takes too much for granted on her part. She, too, has an idea that the Salem man is rather a useless personage and has an inclination to idle away his life. Suddenly Sarah makes up her mind to seek the unknown West and, with the Titcomb family, starts in a wagon for the Ohio River. She gives Harry no sign. He only knows that she is bound for the new territory. Having obtained a commission in the army, he follows her. There is, however, another one interested in Sarah, and he is Silas Ransom, a strange admixture of the New England farmer and fisherman. Silas reaches Muskingum first and just in time. The new settlers have to fight with the Shawnees. Harry Curwen it is, however, who saves Sarah, and his devotion is appreciated. The story is a good one, descriptive of the early movement from East to West - The New York Times October 9, 1892.
