[p. 14] up what is now Powder House road (then called Bishop's lane), over the crest of the hill to a little knoll a short distance away, on which was a growth of trees standing in such positions as to form a bower. We spent the forenoon in picking wild flowers and in rambling about the woods in the immediate vicinity. This was the ‘Bower’ mentioned by Mr. Brooks and the ‘Bower’ of my boyhood. Every boy and girl of that generation knew its location. Mr. Brooks published his history some years after I used to visit the place. It was nowhere near the site of the old mill-dam or near any other dam site.
