This chapter discusses the watershed in the lives of Christopher de Graffenried and William Brice, two neighbors on the Neuse River. Brice had been living on Brice's Creek, a tributary of the Trent River just south of the mouth of the Neuse, when De Graffenried and his colonists moved in. Almost immediately the two men clashed. That was to be expected. The aristocratic Switzer was haughty and the bluff Englishman crass. However, if De Graffenried was at the low point of his life, then Brice was about to enter the high point of his—or so it seemed.
