Gradually we saw the grass cut, and daily the fragrant loads were carried into the great barns beyond the intervale, and now in September the rural roads lead through short grass and past clumps of still wild sunflowers and still lingering rose-raspberry — the most conspicuous all-summer bloom.
The whole intervale belongs to one farm, originally a thousand acres or a mile square, and stretching far up into the beautiful Holderness woods behind.
The boundary of the farm is the Pemigewasset River; and one corer boundary of the farm is described in the old deed, with unconscious repetition, as the Pont-Fayette bridge.
I have sought in vain for the origin of this French name; and Crooked Mountain Pine Place has no historian.
It is known that in 1780 a brigade of New Hampshire troops, commanded by Colonel Poor, served under Lafayette at West Point and in New Jersey; and possibly this bridge may have been first built soon after this time and by some of Lafayette's old soldiers.
