Madawaska River, Maine
This river is in the county of Penobscot, and is the outlet of Temiscouata lake and other large bodies of water in the northern part of the county bordering on the line of Lower Canada. This river and these lakes, with their numerous tributaries, water a country of great extent, and which is said to equal any country in the world in fertility, even the luxuriant prairies of the "boundless west." The course of these waters is N.W. and traverse a distance of more than 100 miles. From the mouth of Madawaska into the St. John's to Augusta is about 240 miles N.N.E.
