The letter included two rather priceless keepsakes Mrs. Fredson's epic poem entitled "A Legend of Sthuootdus" and which was written by her many years ago, and also lost for a period of 20 or 25 years. The lost poem was found when Mrs. Fredson moved from her home in ShelLon. and on packing her belongings, to the home of her daughter Betty Austin at Yakima with whom she now makes her home. "The Legend of Sthuook- lns" consists of 28 verses, and is based upon ,an early Indian leg- end she heard as a young woman. when she first taught school at Union. The poem also as do many In- dian fables deals in fantasy, and also some of historic happenings of early times. The tale cente/-ed upon a large rock. located on the beach at Union. south of the for- mer Jessie Pritchard cottage. According to old fables of the Skokomish people, the rock was said to have a power. Ttie ancients on passing the rock in their large old cedar canoes, somethnes came close to shore. "sometimes patting it. and murmuring in delate-- "South wind blow" when they xieret on their way to Tahuya, or the north shore bf Hood Canal, where they had excellent clam beds. 2tnd also cainpihg places vhere they dried the clams they dug, while. ehj0ying a camp out in thor klisquis, or rush Shelters. "Little' Flyb!ow '' and "FlyBlow" ih the narrows, having been a couple of their favorite camp grounds as late as 40 years ago old Hudson Bay trade beads and arrow heads were found scattered in the area of an 01d-time Indian barrel ptace, under the large old madionit trees, by others and also ourselves. The other rare old time relic is a faded old snap shot Mrs. Fredson Look at the float house of the Slocums at Oakland Bay, in 1900 or thei'e abouts. Slocum was said to haw Been the fouhder of the Shaker religion, and which be- lief is now wide spread in Indian tribes of the Pacific Northwest Of the old-Lime snap shot Mrs. Fred- son writes briefly, A snap shot. I Look of "Auhty Slocum" and "her man" way back in the 1900's or thereab0uts, when they lived in their floaLhouse at Oakland Bay". The later famed religions leader and discbverer of the Shaker church, is pictured as he sat bare- footed, with an old slouch felt hat atop his head of long dark hair. and worn as long as the pageboy hair style. In his hands +he held a stout cane. His gaze is directed at the camera." Aunty Slocum" as Mrs. Fredson called his wife is of neat appearance, clad in dark hotise dress and with hair pinned back and wo up. She wears a shawl draped across her right shoulder, and although her feet are hidden by her somewhat crouched posi- tion, one feels the lady is wearing shoes. She also has light colored beads on, they show a little at the neckline of her dark dress. The entrance to the. float house is open, and a piece of fish net, perhaps gill net. hangs from a pro- jecting rafter. We rather imagine.the member and leaders of the Skokomish Sha- ker church would appreciate see- ing this old-time print, of their revered leader and founder of the Shaker chm'ch, The poem "A Legend of Sthuoo- klus" begins and also ends with the same Verse.

Evoked from out the shadows of the past. This story of "Sthuooldus". The stanzas in between are dramatic. and colorful, and also beautifully expressed and written. It is in- scribed to "The Dalbys and Un- ion"-, perhaps Mrs. Fredson real- ly meant--the early name Nell Andersen prefers, Union City. A-little past 93 years of age, this remarkable and loveable old- time school teacher of Union and Mid Skokomish schools of yester- years and at one time County Su- perintendent of schools is mentally as keen and alert as many a youn- ger person Her keen sense of hu- mor makes life enjoyable dispite the faeL that she is having a little eye trouble, and which somewhat limits her painting of delightful aod dainty miniature landscapes of the rural scenery she glimpses from tier window and porch at Ya- kima. It may be said--4he song "I Love Life" expresses the attitude of rs. Jean TOdd Fredson Her former pupils of Masoh County and their children, have a deep regard and affection for this lady.
