Windham county. Taken from Mansfield, Hampton and Windham, in 1832. It is watered by Natchaug river, which passes nearly through its centre. The town is small, but the soil is good, and populated by industrious farmers, who, by their practice of keeping a large number of sheep, seem to be convinced of the fact that wool is one of the most important staples of New England. It lies 10 miles W. by N. from Brooklyn and 30 E. by N. from Hartford.
