"On the hill is the Parish cottage behind which was a large coach house. Here George Parish stayed overnight & changed horses on his way from Ogdensburg to Antwerp.

Daniel Webster, Martin Van Buren, the lovely Ameriga [Vespucci] and the men she loved are brought to life again in a singularly appealing narrative.""Ameriga Vespucci was real, tale of her alliances (Daniel Webster, John Van Buren) is woven from fact, legend and imagination."
