Biography

FRANCIS MORRIS was a character, long, lank, uncouth in his movements, but jolly, kind-hearted and a very genial comrade; everybody liked him. He was about seventeen years old with a growing boy's appetite and had the art of always finding something to satisfy it. He was a great forager and many a porker and fowl found its way into camp through his agency. He is still living the same easy going, jolly citizen.
