Thoughts of an Ancestor

QUOTEHenry John Moberly 1865
“There is a valley on the upper Smoky full of warm springs and covered with luxurious grass. Snow never lies to any depth on the rich soil….. This spot doubtless will be a favourite resort and, if I am any prophet, a veritable garden. I have a theory that coal beds have been smouldering beneath it for ages, and that the smoke issuing from the banks of the Smoky and to which it owes its name come from fissures of the earth. The scenery all about is magnificent.”
