Departing from Camp in the Small Lagoon by Theodore Cornu. Pen-and-ink drawing from Hudson Valley Echoes, issue #3, 1953.

A wind starting at daybreak now blows moderately from the northwest. Departing from our camping place in the small lagoon located near the southwest end of the Point (Tellers Point) we paddle along the beautiful Senasqua marshes, the tall slender grasses swaying in the breeze. . . .”
