"I sing of the great Ridge Road,
Of the highway our children shall see
That lies like a belt on Ontario's shore
Carved out in wisdom of ages before
For the races that yet are to be."
TREK—DE WITT CLINTON—1810
"In the great work of internal improvement he
persevered through good report and through
evil report, with a steadiness of purpose that
no obstacle could divert."
