Dear Sir;

On Wednesday, October 15th, we took leave of our friends at Charlestown, and rode through Boston, Roxbury, Milton, Quincey, Braintree, Weymouth, and a skirt of Hingham, to an inn, in the western part of Scituate: thirty miles. The next day we reached Plymouth, seventeen miles, at noon; where we lodged in the hospitable house of Mr. H., a respectable merchant and my particular friend. As I shall have occasion to mention this tract hereafter, I shall omit a description of it for the present.

The next morning we pursued our journey through Carver, eight miles, and Middleborough, thirteen, to Taunton, twenty-six.

Immediately after we left Plymouth we ascended the brow of a vast, yellow-pine plain, spreading over a great part of the county of Plymouth, a part of the county of Bristol, and a part of the state of Rhode-Island. This is the largest tract of lean land in Massachusetts, and the least productive. The road is generally a heavy sand, over which our horses made their way with difficulty.
