Example text

Reverend Conway Wing’s grand and absorbing History of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania () quotes a letter from John O’Neal to Governor James Hamilton, written on May , , from the newly established town of Carlisle, which had only five “dwelling houses” at that date: The situation, however, is handsome, in the centre of a valley, with a mountain bounding it on the north and the south, at a distance of seven miles. The wood consists principally of oak and hickory. The limestone will be of great advantage to the future settlers, being in abundance.

The Treatise personifies the original expert—the first to publish a handbook, and thus the first to give promise of relieving the fisherman’s bewilderment. Furthermore, even the Treatise, the supposed Old Testament of the sport, tantalizes us with lost lore, at one point vaguely citing unnamed “bokes of credence” as among the sources for its The Fisherman’s Chaucer  25 knowledge. ” I agree that most of the Treatise was probably based on oral tradition, but McDonald risks slighting what might be an important heads-up to us; the Treatise could really be telling us that we have not yet seen everything there is to see in early fishing writing.

James Le Tort (also spelled Le Tart but eventually standardized as Letort) was by most accounts the first white person to settle in present-day Cumberland County, building a cabin there. He traded with the local Native Americans (who at one point apparently burned the cabin, whatever that tells us about Le Tort the trader), and eventually became an interpreter, though little seems known about his other activities between  and the s. More important than the stream’s namesake is its character, which is also hinted at in this letter.
