The Settlement At Marietta

Putnam House In A Marietta, Ohio, Museum

From the Life, Journals and Correspondence of Rev. Manasseh Cutler, L.L.D.:

At the commencement of the settlement (at Marietta) the whole of these works were covered by a prodigious growth of trees. When I arrived the ground was in part cleared, but many large trees remained on the walls and mounds.
