Especially is he pursued with unrelenting severity, who has dared to break the silence of the primeval forest by the blows of the American ax.

After enduring all the privations ...

... great river of God, always full of water, to moisten hill-side and meadow, to turn lonely saw-mills, and drive the wheels in great factories, which make a metropolis of manufactures,—to bear alike the lumberman's logs and the trader's ships to their appointed place; the stream feeding many a little forget-me-not, as it passes by.
