of breaking the stones 34 miles


Set Off for Kingwood

, crossed the Pequest
within one mile of our Quarters, thenc[e]
rode several miles with it near on our right
having the Large allomoochy Mountain
close on our left, here we passed by what
is called the great Meadows, being seve-
-ral Thousand Acres, with very little timber
on it, and a large proportion without any,
it produces a valuable out let, and some
Coarse Hay. for want of more fall in the Pequest
it cannot be drained. In a few miles
we passed through Hacketstown a scatter-
-ing Village, thence 10 miles to James
on Muskenecunk where we fed, then
down sd. Creek 5 miles to Southhampton
a small Village, from thence to Henry
of Kingwood 12 miles. perhaps Some 7 miles
back of some hights, there are two delight
-ful prospects over a large extent of an
improved Country, down the Waters
of the Rariton: several small branches
of said stream we having crossed on our way hither,
about one mile back we left Pitts Town,
a small Village, to our right. 34 miles
