"I will never put my foot beyond the township line again," I vowed to my secret soul.
Within this mound will be found a stone with as many notches cut on the east and west side as it is miles to the township line.
In due time I reached the top and found the township line which I had many times followed over the ridge.
Then I went back up the mountain and followed the township line down the steep part and met another new blazed trail.
In New England these signs are frequently placed, at the township line rather than at the village boundary.
