Quotes:
...the road runs up to Carlisle, city of the woods, which, if it is less civil, is the more natural. It does well hold the earth together. It gets laughed at because it is a small town, I know, but nevertheless it is a place where great men may be born any day, for fair winds and foul blow right on over it without distinction. It has a meeting-house and horse-sheds, a tavern and blacksmith's shop, for centre, and a good deal of woods to cut and cord yet.
-- A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers
