Here stood Duke Fordham's Inn, destroyed by
the fire of 1845; here James Fenimore Cooper
penned his first novel, Precaution, while awaiting
the return of the whaleship Union, in which
he owned shares along with his uncle, local
cooper, Edward Cooper. Precaution was not
a best-seller, but it and Cooper's proceeds from
the Union encouraged his further writings, which
culminated in The Last of the Mohicans.
