Skaneateles, 1852

“Emerging from a dense forest, on the last morning of the journey, they welcomed the light of an opening, and the sweet Skaneateles glowed upon their eyes. They were moving along its foot, and it glimmered and waved like a lake of quicksilver, in reply to the smiles of a splendid sky.”

— Summerfield, or, Life on a Farm (1852) a novel by Day Kellogg Lee (1816-1869)
