He went, and the Paspaheghs rested under the trees until the old men of the village came forth to lead them through the brown fields and past the ring of leafless mulber- ries to the strangers' lodge. Here on the green turf mats were laid for the visitors, and water was brought for their hands. Later on, the women spread a great breakfast of fish and tur- key and venison, maize bread, tuckahoe and pohickory. When it was eaten, the Paspaheghs ranged themselves in a semi- circle upon the grass, the Pamunkeys faced them, and each warrior and old man drew out his pipe and tobacco pouch.

The strange people in whose power we found ourselves looked on with grim approval, as at brave men who could laugh in Death's face. The sun was high in the heavens when we bade the Pamun- keys farewell. The cleared ground, the mulberry trees, and the grass beneath, the few rude lodges with the curling smoke above them, the warriors and women and brown naked chil- dren,—all vanished, and the forest closed around us.
