Transparent Amenity

“Granite, slate, and limestone hills, charming valleys, extensive plains of gently rolling surface, rugged elevations, and lofty mountains, alternate with streams, cascades, ponds, and beautiful lakes of all dimensions, from the calm and transparent amenity of Skeneateles, to the inland seas of Erie and Ontario.”

— From “New York” in The United States and the Other Divisions of the American Continent (1833) by Timothy Flint
