Famous quotes containing the word huntley:
“Ye say they all have passed away,
That noble race and brave;
That their light canoes have vanished
From off the crested wave;
That, mid the forests where they roamed,
There rings no hunters shout;
But their name is on your waters,
Ye may not wash it out.”
