There, too, I heard the tale of the Fairy Isle, where Blennerhasset and his beautiful wife made their Eden home, ere a wild ambition swept over it, and left it all blackness and ruin.  From the Alleghanies to the buffalo­beats of Nebraska, every native­born Western man and woman owes these old settlers a debt of gratitude and love, for teaching the world how strong and brave the human heart can be.  The name of the trim little craft was the Rufus Putnam, after the memorable founder of this new world.

When he died at the Battle of the Thames in 1813, his dream of a confederacy died with him.  Yet, through "Miranda," a pseudonymous character in Woman in the Nineteenth Century, Fuller espouses the form of upbringing she received.  In Summer on the Lakes, in 1843, Fuller describes this time, but attributes the events to a fictional character, Mariana.  She taught herself German, and published translations of Goethe and other philosophical German works, book reviews, and essays, most of them in the Dial, a transcendentalist publication.

It was the dust and cobwebs of time that troubled him; of old memories, of early hardships, of dangers, toils and death; of friends long gone, linked to the present by every success and every triumph.  Memories of days when he was young, when the hair upon his brow was not silvered; when he roamed the dense forest, rifle in hand, and peered cautiously for the savage foe behind every tree and fallen log; when the panther lay crouched in the path, and the rattlesnake coiled itself by the wayside, and the wild wolf howled nightly upon the hills; of the days when friends and brothers went out at morn, and returned not at nightfall; when sickness and sorrow came with heavy steps, and there were none to help; when the fire swept away the toil of years, and the hopes of days to come.
