Andovek, Oxford Co., Maisk )
August 19, 1882.
Editor of the Roundabout :
Being a former resident of Frankfort, and
hnving come here to spend a few weeks
beiore making my home in Rhode Island.
I thought I would drop you a short note
and let you know something of what I am
doing. Andover is a small village ol about
fifty houses on or near the main street, and
a dozen or two scattered about on the crossroads.
There nre two or three country
stores of the usual type nnd two meeting
house. I do not know that there is anv
lawyer in town, and I have not heard who
the village doctor is. The villagers claim
that n doctor would be staived to death.
the place is so distressingly hcnlthty. To
reacn Anuover you go iy theWrand Trunk
Railway to Bnants Pon'd Station, sixtv odd
miles from Portland, nnd there take the
stage for a drive of miles over a
charming road, with mountains all around
and fertile valleys uestlingat its leet Everv
lew miles vou cros some rustic bruise, over
a clear flowing brook, suggestive of innu
merable trout. Altera ten mile ride vou
i each the little town of Rumlord, which
may have been called so alter the famous
person of that nitme, or else hecniisc it was
impossible to obtain any rum in the place.
Here the Androscrogiu river is cioed on
a primitive kind of ferry-boat, which is
lastened to a entile stretched across the
stream, and pulled over hv means of two
smaller ropes which run on wheels alowr

the work and soon ihe other side is reached
and the stage driven up the river bank.
There you come to nnd cross the little Ellis
river, which turns in and out. ike Tenny
son's "Brook," through tho lovely meadows,
and keep in sight nearly all the way to
Yon pass Lead Mountain where the
mines were worked for a number of years,
but finally abandoned; then comes insight
old White Cap a famous peak for
parties, and from wIioms summit the
city of Portland, more than sixty miles
awny, enn be seen on n clenr dny. It is a
drive of ten miles from Humford, fascinating
all the way. if you nre on the top of
the conch until you reach Andover. and
laud if you are wise at French's Hotel,
where I am at present sojourning.
I have had a good deal of ttout
since I have been here and think the trout
are as gamy a fish to catch, and as delicious
lo eat as any that swim. I went on a picnic
the other day and the gentlemen took
their iishiu rods intending to fish while the
ladies picked blueberries. The result wns
a large strinir of trout nnd ten qunrts of
berries, which made a most nppetizing
supper on our return. The very roadsides
of this part of the country are ablaze with
the red raspberries, and ns we go on walks
with the j:irl.s we pick quarts and quarts of
them The weather !h most delightful, the
nights being cool enough for two blankets
on the bed. I advise any of my friends who
wish to have a taste of fresh mountain nir,
and a sight of some of the loveliest views
in the world to make a trip to this place.
It will do them more good than all the
doctors in Kentucky, though you have some
first-class ones in Frnnkfoit. If any one is
fond of shooting, partridges are plentiful,
and some bears Imve been seen a few miles
out of town, But as this is ns much as your
readers will be able to bear. I will close
for ihe present. C, J.
