"If, now, the spectator will turn to the north, he will see another wide lawn descending to another sheet of water surrounded by trees, and covered in the season with a profusion of white water lilies (Nymphaea alba). Let the visitor now descend this lawn and place himself on the western edge of the lily pond, and he will see, if the day be calm and the face of the pond be free from ripple, a beautiful picture of a bank of trees with the Column of Liberty reflected in the water as in a sheet of silvered glass."
The Monthly chronicle of North-country lore and legend, Vol. 3, p.391 (1889).
