Penobscot co. This town lies on
the east side of Penobscot river, 98

counties. It passes south about
35 miles, and falls into the Connec-
ticut at Barnet, about a mile below

intervale it forms on its borders.—
It is generally deep, but in many
places it is very rapid, and forms
beautiful cascades.
