Passamaquoddy Bay, Maine

This bay lies partly in Maine, and partly in the British Province of New Brunswick. The boundary line between the state of Maine and New Brunswick passes through the western part of this bay up the river St. Croix. Campo Bello, Deer, and other English islands almost enclose the bay from the ocean. At its mouth it is about 9 miles in width, and extends from West Quoddy Head, in Lubec, due north into New Brunswick, about 25 miles.—This bay contains a great number of excellent harbors; it is never frozen over, and abounds with cod, herring, and other fishes. The most important English town on this bay is St. Andrews, a very flourishing place, 15 miles N. from Eastport.—The Passamaquoddy Indians reside at Perry, Me.
