He told me of this about 1815 when he was ninety-four or ninety-five years old. He said that Mr. Whitcomb was a short old man with very white and grey hair hanging in curls about his neck; that he came to their barn to swindle flax; that he jumped over the fence as spry as a cat.” (From notes of Samuel Whitcomb, Jr.) [1, 2]
