It is proposed in the following pages, to sketch a brief geographical view of Piscataquis County; to state its early surveys, grants, proprietors and settlers; to present its natural resources: and to detail the progress of its pecuniary, social, literary and religious interests. We also hope to rescue from oblivion, those incidents of historical value, which are fast and forever departing to. the grave, with those hoary head's, who in the sprightliness of their childhood and youth both witnessed and helped to enact them.
