General Note:
Hand drawn map, ink on paper, depicts Lake Quannapowitt and environs, showing public and private buildings and property owners. Twenty small ink sketches depict noteworthy homes and monuments.
Map includes the text of anonymous poem, "A Native's Tribute" - "Lake of our Home! Around thy shores The graceful hill-slopes rise, And on thy waves the sunset pours The splendor of the skies! Lake of the painted Sachem's pride When forests hemmed it in - And Quanapohit reigned beside The wave-washed shores of Lynn. Its calm no Indian paddles break, no forest camp-fires blaze - No barking wolf its echoes wake, as in primeval days. We note the meadow's emerald rim - Its flowery ferny lines; And from the forest-border dim, Catch odors of the pines. The gliding sails we see; - we hear The rhythmic dip of oars, With merry voices sweet and clear, Along its peopled shores."
