Quotes:
After two hours of delightful excursion, we left Goat Island, and cast a farewell look on it from the bridge which unites it to the main land. From this it appeared to us like a garden in the air, supported by the clouds, and surrounded by thunder.
-- Writings of A. Levasseur, secretary accompanying Gen. Lafayette on an 1824 visit
