We may wonder what the few that did see it thought of it. It is said that the Clermont alarmed some dwellers by the Hudson. One of them declared ‘he had seen the devil going to Albany in a saw-mill.’ But New Yorkers became accustomed to it, while Medfordites did not, and with the passing of the few witnesses the fact that such an occurrence had been was lost sight of for many years. It seems like a fairy tale when Summer street and Boston avenue, Sagamore avenue and the Mystic Valley parkway are pointed out as being the course of a steamboat voyage a hundred years ago, but such is the case.
