Description

Page 153 found in Chapter twelve in Volume one of Marryat's A Diary in America. The writer is lamenting the loss of the forest caused by the construction of the Erie Canal. Marryat notes that occasionally some solitary tree is left standing, throwing out its wide arms, and appearing as if in lamentation at its separation from its companions, with whom for centuries it had been in close fellowship.
