Note:

"Two days after this wedding, Louis went out with his wife to hunt seals. She steered and he took the gun the way these Indians do. She steered him close to a seal, he fired and missed, she brought him to a third seal, close to it, he missed again. She said nothing but paddled to shore an then ran to her father's lodge. She says she will never live with him again."
Vol. I, pgs. 21-22.
