Mr W. II. Alexander, Director, local
Office, C S. Weather Bureau:
Dear Slr:--In reply to you request nf a
recent dale, asking me to give in my own
words a description of the phenomenon
teen by me on July 2, 1M7. at about 11 a.
m., I submit tho following brief statement
of facts concerning tho event, as I remem
I was standing on tho corner of Church
and College streets, Just in front of the
Howard bank, and facing east, encaged In
conversation with ex-Governor Woodbury
and A A. Duel!, when, without the slight
est Indication or warning, wo were star
tled by what sounded like a most unusual
and terrific explosion very near by. Hats
ing my eyes and looking eastward along
College street, I observed a torpedo
shaped body so .ie ;1 feet away, station
ary In appearance and suspended In the
air about Co feet above the tops of the
buildings. In size, It was about sis feet
Ion by eight Inches In diameter,
the shell or cover having a dark
appearance, with here and there,
topgues of fire Issuing from spots on the
surface rf sen-.bling red-not unburnlshed
copper Although stationary when first
noticed this object soon began to move,
rather slowly, ;ind disappeared over Do
lan Pi-others' store, southward. As It
moved, the covering seemed rupturing In
places and through these the Intensely red
fla liter isued. Mv first Imprevslon wa
that it was some explosive shot from tho
upper portior of the Hull furniture; store.
When first peon It was surroundeed hy a
h-lo of dim light, some m feet In diameter
There was no odor, that I am aware of,
perceptible after the disappearance of the
phenomenon, nor was there any damage
done, so far as kniwn to me. Although
th" ky was entirely clear overhead, there
was an angry looking cumulo-nimbus
:Ioud approaching from the northwest:
otherwise, there was absolutely nothing to
lead us to expe- t anything o remarkable.
And strange to say, although the down
pour of rain following this phenomenon,
perhaps twenty minutes later, lasted at
least half an hour, there was no indica
tion of any other flash of lightning or
mi.nd of thuncior.
Tour weeks have passed since tho occur

So far as Is known the first stoauihoat
ever seen on the waters of America was
Invented by Captain Pamuel Morey from
whom this lake derives its natie.

a single companion m.nln his first trip

to make some alteration In bis boat nnd
when next, he came to New York, treat
ed him with such coolness as to Indicate
that they had fully acquired tho seciot
of his Invention,
It Is beyond all question that Morey
had launched his boat on the waters of
Veimont before Fulton had iHcunipllslied
the same purpose In New York.
It Is nlso a well established fact that
Fulton visited Captain Morev at Falrlee,
Vt.. for the purpose of -wltnesslnR his
successful experiment, before he (Ful
ton) had launched anv kind nf u steam
craft upon the waters, and It can bo
shown that Morey had b.-cn nidged In
such experiments for years before, so
that the first ptnetlcal steamboat ever
seen upon tho waters of America was
Invented by Captain Samuel Morey, the
father of steam navigation.
The original model engine Is now In
jio)-ekson of a lady at Lake Morey. And
there also may be seen the mill stone
of the famous smoke-mill which obtained
its motive power from tho draft of a
chimney several hundred feet In length.
