Dixon Ryan Fox, Jefferson Hill, 1837 These ornamented grounds lie desolate; Those stately trees that waved o'er beauteous

slopes, By fellers' hands now strewed in fragments lie; The trees that bent with fruits from Eden sprung Are plucked by passers' hands, and none

rebuke; These halls are desolate from silence thrillingThat dwelling fair; its very cornerstone Which time had failed to loosen, Now must yield to the improvers power;

The beauteous knoll is marred to fill yon hollow; And in the room of gentle solitude Wooing to thought and fastening our hearts By interlacing tendrils to the throne

Of God, our portion, here shall sound the roar Of railroad train thundering adown the gorge, All level, straight, and stiff, and stereotyped, Where nature poured her beauty's store

abundant. From Dixon Ryan Fox, Jefferson Hill published originally in Catskill Messenger

Thomas Cole on the Railroad The hurry, noise, and restlessness of railroad travelling with the consequent violence done to all the natural requirements of the body are

anything but conducive of health of body or serenity of mind. The body is made to be merely a sort of Tender to a locomotive car; its appetites and functions wait on a Machine which is

merciless and tyrannical. Thomas Cole, Jounal, 1847 George Inness, Lackawanna Valley,

And for the season it was winter, and they that know the winters of that cuntrie know them to be sharp and violent, and subjecte to cruell and feirce stormes, deangerous to travill to known places, much more to serch an unknown coast. Besids, what could they see

but a hidious and desolate wildernes, full of wild beasts and willd men? and what multituds ther might be of them they knew not. Nether could they, as it were, goe up to the tope of Pisgah, to vew from this willdernes a more goodly cuntrie to feed their hops; for

which way soever they turnd their eys (save upward to the heavens) they could have litle solace or content in respecte of any outward objects. `For summer being done, all things stand upon them with a wetherbeaten face; and the whole countrie, full of woods and

thickets, represented a wild and savage heiw.
