We also passed quite a pleasant region, which was cultivated on both sides of the Hudson. We came to a traverse whose river emptied into the Hudson. For lack of a bridge, the corps had to walk up to their waists through the water, which was a most unpleasant and dangerous undertaking; for the current was so fast that one could hardly keep one’s balance.

Julius Wasmus August 11, 1777
