Excerpt from Historical sketches of Old Orchard and the Shores of Saco Bay: Biddeford Pool, Old Orchard Beach, Pine Point, Prout's Neck

Some travellers see and enjoy more than others. Those best informed enjoy most. The greater the knowledge of a locality the greater the pleasure of travel. What to one is a barren, useless tract, with nothing of interest, is to another athrilling reminder of early warfare, heroic struggles, and daring deeds. What to one is a pile of moss-grown ruins is to another aland - mark of early history. A house, old fashioned and shattered, is to one uninteresting and unsightly, while to another who knows its history it has the charm of romance. The weather-beaten grave-stone which one passes 'unheeded another looks upon with reverence. Nearly every spot along the shores of Saco Bay is hallowed by thrilling associations and interesting reminiscences. To pre sent some of these in a concise form for the enter tainment of the numerous patrons of Old Orchard, and Biddeford Pool, as well as to interest the gen~ eral reader, and preserve from oblivion some bistori cal incidents never before published, has occasioned the author to issue this little volume. J. S. L.
