42 Major David, Ziegler. dignity of deportment and affectionate kindness of character' whom he met in Cincinnati. He says that the elegance of the houses, the parade of servants, the display of furniture, and more than all, the luxury of their over loaded tables, would compare with the better houses in the x\tlantic cities. He gives this discription of their market: In another place the Tunkers with their long and flowing beards have brought their teams with their fat mutton and fine flour. Fowls, domestic and wild turkeys, venison, those fine birds which are here called partridges, but which we call quails, all sorts of fruits and vegetables, equally excellent and cheap. The abundant good cheer and hearty welcome guests re- ceived reminded him of accounts of old English hospitality. General Harrison, for instance, kept open house to all respectable visitors. Mrs. Ludlow, describing Cincinnati in 1797, says that it was then a village of wooden buildings with a garrison of soldiers. The society consisted of a small number of ladies, united by the most perfect good will, and desire for mutual happiness. The gentlemen were social and intelligent. For several of the latter, among whom she mentioned Major Ziegler, slid felt an almost fraternal regard, a regard which others whom the kindly Major at that or a later day, had welcomed with cordial and genial hospitality, shared with her.

The clothing, sheet iron, cartridges and flints all arrived safe. The remainder of the clothing I shall be expecting when Lieut. Denny arrives.

April 12th (1786) an express arrived at Fort McIntosh from Fort Pitt with information that a number of Indians had come in there the night before, their design unknown. Captain Ziegler set out immediately to ascertain their intentions. On May 4th Zieglers and Strongs companies embarked for Muskingum where they arrived on May 8 and encamped in the woods a little distance from Fort Harmar, which had been built by Major Doughty the preceding autumn. All along the winding river, And adown the shady glen, On the hill and in the valley, The voice of war resounds again. For the following four years these two companies marched from one place to another in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Ken- tucky, under command of Harmar, not remaining long anywhere, protecting settlers, guarding surveyors, and government agents or army officers who were endeavoring to make treaties with the Indians.
