Judge McConihe:Dear Sir - Shortly after the close of the Revolutionary War, in 1784, when quite a lad, under the instruction of the late Hon. John Lovett, of facetious memory, then principal of an academy in Albany, one bright morning in April, on his invitation, I embarked with him in a canoe to make a voyage to Half-Moon Point, now the village of Waterford. Mr. Lovetts servant man was of the party.

We tugged at the oar against a strong current, making slow progress, continually admonished, ifWe slack our hands, or cease to strive,Then down the flood with headlong haste we drive.About sun-set we arrived at the south part of the village of Lansingburgh, where dwelt, on the bank of the river, one Baily Austin. The young lad was landed for the night- Mr. Lovett continued the voyage- the parting was rather unpleasant, though not comparing with the case of Calypso, who remained disconsolate after the departure of Ulysses.The next morning, Mr.

Lovett returned. We wended our way back to Albany.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
