Quotation:
ALLEN KELLY
Bears I Have Met - and Others, 1903

"Curious how some men will lose their grip on the truth when they talk about bears, said Mr. Jack Waddell of Ventura. 'There's old Ari Hopper, for example, a man whose word is good in a hoss trade, but when he tells about his bear fights he puts your confidence in him to an awful strain. I don't say that Ari would tell lies, but he puts a whole lot of fancy frills on his stories and fixes 'em up gorgeous. I reckon I've run across most as many bears as anybody, but I never had no such adventures as I read about.'"
