and he made me describe to him tbe method of
putting it on, and the warmth and comfort of il
when on. Be it remembered that he waa a very
large, corpulent roan, probably weighing aiiteeo
stone ; I knew him to be very good natured, at I
had hunted once with his son ; and, on returning
lo his lodge, tba father had feasted me, chatted
with me by signs, and taught ne some of tbat
most extraordinary lndan Method of communtca.
