New Salem, IL (?)

[Matthew S. Marsh, who lives near New Salem, writes: "On the night of the 17th of August a tornado passed over this place, laid the fences flat, rooted up trees, blew down corn and done other damage. The next morn by daylight as I was putting up my fence, two great wolves walked along unconcerned within 50 yards of me."IHiā€”Trans., 1926, 125.]
