EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
The Adventures of Marquette
 On the 13th of May this band of seven men, in two birch canoes, commenced their adventurous voyage. They took with them some Indian corn and jerked meat, but were to live mainly upon such food as they could obtain by their way..
 On the northwest of Lake Michigan there is a sheet of water running south called Green Bay. It is one hundred miles long by twenty or thirty broad. The boatmen paddled their frail canoes along the western border of this lake until they reached its southern extremity, where they found a shallow river flowing into it from the south, which they called Fox River. They could propel their canoes about thirty miles a day. Each night they selected some propitious spot for their encampment. Upon some dry and grassy mound they could speedily with their axes construct a hut which would protect them from the weather. Carefully smoothing down the floor, they spread over it their ample couch of furs. Fish could be taken in abundance. The forest was filled with game. An immense fire blazing before the open side of the hut gave warmth and illumined the sublime scene with almost the brilliance of noon-day. Here they joyously cooked their suppers, with appetites which rendered the feast more luxurious to them probably than any gourmand at Delmonico's ever enjoyed.
Each night Father Marquette held a religious service, which all reverently attended. Prayers were offered, and their hymns of Christian devotion floated sweetly through those sublime solitudes. The boatmen were men of a gentle race, who had been taught from infancy to revere the exercises of the church.
They came upon several Indian villages. The natives were friendly as brothers. Many of them had visited the station at St. Ignatius, and all of them had heard of Father Marquette and his labors of love. These children of the forest begged their reverend friend to desist from his enterprise.
"There are," they said, "on the great river bad Indians who will cut off your heads without any cause. There are fierce warriors who will try to seize you and make you slaves. There are enormous birds there whose wings darken the air and who can swallow you all with your canoes at a mouthful. Worst of all there is a malignant demon there who, if you escape all other dangers, will cause the waters to boil and whirl around you and destroy you."
