506 Southwestern Historical Quarterly
The Indians claimed this hunting ground, the buffalo, and the deer,
And opposed with all their might the coming of the pioneer.
Hats off to old surveyor, who ran these frontier lines
For the Texas Pioneer during these perilous Indian times.
Chide not this old surveyor, who in his hurried way,
Hastily marked the corners we are hunting for today.
For he had many handicaps and very little help,
And he knew not when the Indians would try to take his scalp.8
sA. G. Farmer, "The Surveyors of Yesteryears," Report of Fifth Texas Sur-
veyors' Short Course (Austin, 1952), 82.
