Manuscripts/Mixed Material [Hugh M. Wood's Story]
“Yes, and there was a white Lobo wolf in the country, as well as the brown ones. When they howled it seemed that they just shook the ground, spoke up Mrs. Wood.
“One morning, early in the spring, a man came to the door,” continued Mrs. Wood, “and asked if I had seen a cow. 'no, I said, ‘but I saw her tracks. She has been in my garden.”
Well, why did you come out here for?” he asked.
“We came out here to get land of course,” I answered.
“Well, this is my land.” he said.
“Did you turn your cow loose on us?” I asked.
Yes, I turned her out and I am going to turn some more out,” he said, and he walked away and I found out it was Wild Horse Brown. So sure enough a heard of 37 cattle was soon tramping down our crops. But the men drove the cattle off our claim onto the next man's claim and he in turn drove them on to the other man's claim until they had been driven several miles away. They kept them moving until when Mr. Brown found them the could only get about fifteen.”
