By: William Fleming (Author)
Having crossed a creek, which I had been told was within eight or ten miles of The Falls, I leaned once more over the open side of our stage, and beheld, not without emotion, ascending in two columns, what Mrs. Butler has so beautifully characterized as 'The everlasting incense of the waters.' Their appearance resembled that of smoke: and, elsewhere, I should have regarded them as traces of the backwoodsman in the forest. At the same moment I heard a soft deep murmur: - it was the unceasing voice of The Falls which stole upon my ear.
The road diverges from the river before approaching the village of Chippaway: an uninteresting drive of three or four miles farther, brought us to the 'Pavilion.' To the observer, from this elevated position, The Falls, both British and American, with part of the rapids, suddenly reveal themselves. Though not the finest view that may be obtained, yet it impressed me beyond all expectation. I had sensations of delight such as I never before experienced, and gave evidence of them by exclamations, such as I believe never before escaped me.
