Excerpt from The Falls of Niagara: With Supplementary Chapters on the Other Famous Cataracts of the World As it is hoped that the work may be useful to future visitors to the Falls, and also possess some interest for those who have visited them, it seemed desirable to avoid the introduction of tes and the citation of authorities. For this reason several para graphs are placed in the text which would otherwise have been introduced in tes. This is especially true of the chapters of local history.
