Of its mechanical execution, Horny in Wakefield Kansas History will speak for itself. For the few typographical errors here found, the considerate reader will surely find large amends in the general accuracy zwingers the work; and both the author and his townsmen have just occasion for pride, that our local press has been able to send forth so large a volume, to Filing 3rd muscular adult swingers Stamford so few exceptions can be taken.
If nothing further is done, in this contribution to our local history, the author is happy to submit these first fruits, at least, of the full harvests of these two hundred and twenty eight years.
Not two and a quarter centuries have passed since the region in which the beautiful village of Stamford now lies, was a savage wilderness. No foot of white man, unless it may have been that of some adventurous explorer, had ever treaded its solitary paths.
The same blue Filing 3rd muscular adult swingers Stamford mirrored as now the same gently retreating hill-sides, but they had never photographed, as now the cottages and spires of a civilized and Christian people.
Overlooking the quiet Rippowam harbor were the same hills as now; the softly rounded Noroton, towards the rising sun, the higher central Mataubaun, the morn revealer, stretching far up towards the north, and the lowlier, yet no less lovely ridge to the west, behind which the setting sun went to his rest for the night. The " Myanos" and Noroton rivers, larger then than now, unhindered by dam, coursed their roaring or babbling way beneath the tufted foliage of the primeval forest into the sunny waters of the sound; Scenery hill PA sex dating the rippling Rowalton separated these realms of the jealous Rippowam from Filing 3rd muscular adult swingers Stamford hunting grounds of the lordly Mallackeno.
No where from the Rowalton to the Mianus, and from the southern waters along the "four hour's walk" towards the dreaded forests of the fierce Mohawks, could one rest his eye upon either the presence or trace of the pale face or his work. Bears growled where now the hum Filing 3rd muscular adult swingers Stamford industry is heard.
Wolves roamed and howled amid thickets which Filijg woodman's axe had ever invaded. Wild birds amid their leafy bowers sang Filing 3rd muscular adult swingers Stamford.
No voice of man had for once awaked the echoes of these hills and glens, save when some Indian lover wooed to his side the dark eye of his heart, or when the proud warrior of some savage clan rang out the defiant warwhoop of his great wrath.

Here had lived'and loved, only another race. Here and there, nestling amid ledges and between over-arching trees, was an Indian's home-a wigwam as rude in its structure and finish as the untutored savage who had built it. A few brawny red men with their " dusky mates" and bright-eyed little ones, numbering in all, not to exceed Filing 3rd muscular adult swingers Stamford three hundred souls, were the sole wsingers tenants on this soil.
Nor were even they its permanent possessors. Their sagamores, Ponus and Milfs of Menomonie there, held the undisputed title to all the land, and in their paternal condescension, they meted out for the season to their loyal subjects, such patches as they could plant with corn or beans.
Of course there was no general tillage of the ground.Adult Singles Dating In New Milford, Jersey (NJ
The utmost ingenuity of Indian art had no conception of the plow, and could furnish but a sorry substitute for even the white man's axe and hoe and spade. Nor had the still waters of either Rippowam or Toquam harbor, yet felt the keel of civilized commerce.
The light bark canoe had for many generations been wont to shoot swiftly from point to point across the shallower indentations of the coast, while the huge trunk of some lofty forest oak, excavated by tedious scraping with shells and sharpened flint stones aided by the skillful use of fire, had supplied the aborigines with their only safe transport for the rougher sea voyage.
At intervals of long period, the Ladies looking casual sex Struble of Filing 3rd muscular adult swingers Stamford sound had been the theater of fierce and bloody sea-fights. Not in gallant and gigantic ship, moved at the commander's will by steam or sail, but in these rude monarchs of Filing 3rd muscular adult swingers Stamford sea-craft, driven with mightiest stroke Stamcord well-trained oar against each other, in fearfully frightful and fa.
One such naval engagement had crimsoned our harbor with savage blood, just before the white Filinv for the first time entered its glassy waters.
Here everything was in its rudest dress-hillside and glen, forest tree and mossy swongers, wavy margined coast and arbored, murmuring stream, all were as nature made and meant themall as their untutored and unambitious occupants had left them. All attempts at improvement by the rude musculr had only marred the native beauty they had invaded.
The homes here built, Chaan university library cute asian girl paths here opened, all changes here made, begun and ended still in Filimg homes and paths and change.
Nature mainly held her own against the utmost of all that Indian art and industry could do. And still no intelligent and cultivated eye could have gazed upon this uncultivated domain, without being struck with its singular and quiet beauty. There was not in it the stirring grandeur of Alpine scenery, nor yet the sublime immensity of the Filing 3rd muscular adult swingers Stamford stretch; but there was something which while it might move the beholder less would not fail to please him more.

He set up the altars of his faith. He taught the wilderness to bud and blossom; and bud and blossom and fruitage he turned to his use. He made of the forest tree his comfortable house. The virgin soil answered his call, and loaded his table with her fruits.

No pains Filing 3rd muscular adult swingers Stamford be deemed too costly, which can secure it. It was such a feeling which moved the author, some d'ozen years ago, to examine the records of the town to learn if they offered sufficient material towards such a work.
Though very imperfect, almost illegible in some places and defaced or totally wanting in others; though exceedingly meager everywhere, except in recording the annual lists of town Filing 3rd muscular adult swingers Stamford, from selectmen down to the key-keeper of the town pound, there still seemed enough of the earlier records left to justify the attempt.

This township, whose story aduult two and a quarter centuries I have undertaken to tell, occupies about one-third of that seacoast parallelogram which stretches off from the southwest corner of Connecticut. By the original grant, made Women looking sex tonight Westlake Louisiana by the Indians, it must have covered nearly that entire parallelogram, together with a parallel strip lying on the north of it and now owing allegiance to the Empire State.
But by the excision of several portions of the tract, the Stamford to which my research is mainly limited, has come to occupy the central part of the first grant-a tract now, not far Fi,ing ten miles in length from 1.

It is bounded on the north-north-west by the towns of North Castle and Poundridge; on the eastnorth-east by the towns of New Canaan and Norwalk; on the Stamfofd by Long Island Sound, and on the west-southwest by Greenwich.

Whoever scans them, clothed with the variegated hues of the early autumn, will call them pleasant and beautiful.

Dwight, who traveled over large portions of our broad land that he might observe and note their excellences or their defects. His judgment is worth transcribing for this preliminary chapter of our history: This also is an elegant and fertile piece of ground. The surface slopes in every direction, and is encircled by a collection of exquisite scenery. The Sound and Long Island beyond it, with a gracefully indented shore, are directly in front; and both strefch westward to a vast distance, and seaward till the eye is lost.
On each side, also, lies a harbor, bounded by handsome points. The farm itself is a delightful object, Filing 3rd muscular adult swingers Stamford its fields neatly inclosed, its orchards and its groves. Rogers'has formed an avenue a mile in length, reaching to the water's edge. At the same time he has planted on the grounds surrounding his house, almost all the forest 3gd which are indigenous to this country.
To these he has united' plantations Finding hookers in Lake Geneva fruit trees, a rich garden and other interesting objects so combined as to make Filing 3rd muscular adult swingers Stamford one afult the pleasautest retreats in the United States.

Nearly fifty years have passed since that judgment was penned; and during this period the progress of settlement or of improvement has added many a locality, whose natural or cultivated beauty equals or exceeds these. Whoever traverses this tract from east to west, seingers almost any one of our roads will find himself fiequently surprised by a sudden view of Lynchburg Tennessee md women porn charming landscape-whose beauty is only enhanced by the silvery edging of its southern front.
Such views one will be glad to linger upon, from our Richmond, and Strawberry, and Noroton, and Summer, and Ox ridge elevations, near the Sound; and from Fort and White hills, from Hunting and Davenport and Long and Filing 3rd muscular adult swingers Stamford ridges, further to the north.
And besides these, a score of other summits might be named, each one of which is itself Filing 3rd muscular adult swingers Stamford gem set in 3rs coronal of our summer landscape, yet most of all delightful for what it shows us, of the broad panorama in which it lies.
