Frenchman's Bay, Maine

This important bay, in the county of Hancock, containing a number of excellent harbors and beautiful islands, is bounded W. by Baker's island, one of the Cranberry islands, and E. by a peninsula in Goldsborough, on the W. side of which is Musquito harbor. The distance across this bay from Baker's island to Goldsborough point is 10 miles. This bay juts in from the Atlantic ocean about 20 miles, and is environed by the towns of Eden, Trenton, Hancock, Franklin, Sullivan, and Goldsborough, and is the recipient of many valuable streams. It is easy of access, never obstructed by ice, and is one of the very best retreats in a storm on the American coast.
