Pemadumcook Lake, Maine
Or the Bamedumpkok. This large lake is of very irregular form, containing a great number of islands, and lies a few miles N. from Baker's mountain. It receives the waters of numerous lakes, or collections of water, lying between it and the eastern sources of the Moose Head. The soil on the borders of the Pemadumcook, and the lakes connected with it, is remarkably fertile. The Jo Mary lakes are beautiful sheets of water and are surrounded by some of the best timbered land in the state. They lie near the Pemadumcook; and the facilities afforded for rafting lumber down the Penobscot, through that lake, render that section of country very valuable.
