Should John Warner Barber's view of Roxbury be included in the inscribed section (or on the page at all). Page 482 states: "A great part of this town is rocky land; hence the name of Rocks'bury; the soil is, however, strong, and in a very high state of cultivation, abounding in country seats and pleasure-grounds." But 483 starts the description of this image: "The above is a view on the elevated ground in the central part of Roxbury..." Pleasant ground is not mentioned [CT 6/12/15] https://archive.org/stream/historicalcollec00bar#page/482/mode/2up
