      "It was not till we were in within a mile or two of its south end that we got our first view of it--a suitably wild looking sheet of water, sprinkled with small, low islands, which were covered with shaggy spruce and other wild wood, --seen over the infant port of Greenville, with mountains on each side and far in the north, and a steamer's smoke-pipe rising above a roof. . . .  There was no village, and no summer road any father in this direction, --but a winter road, that is, one passable only when deep snow covers its inequalities, from Greenville up the east side of the lake to Lily Bay, about twelve miles."
