  1. Hey Cuz, do the readers understand that this peace of heaven is’nt road accessable and three and half miles up Raquette Lake and has always been that way to this day, the old cabin I mean at the needles ?

    • Actually, I am not sure that I have properly conveyed that we are water access only, let alone the fact that our camps do not have electricity. The only difference from 1880, is that we now use propane to light our wall lamps instead of oil.

  2. Tom, I’ve done a bit on Farrand Benendict in an article about the owners of the lands before Inlet was a town and would like to send it to you. I plan to add a comment on the almanac. Can you send an email and I will send it to you. It adds to the info you provided in your Benedict article
