A long, green walk with perennial borders led to the sound. The Cromwell's lawn, not shown here, is very beautiful, sloping many hundreds of feet to the waters of the sound and having one of the oldest and most magnificent trees on the island, a giant Scotch Elm, spreading graceful branches over a vast area of the lawn behind the house. This whole area was used by the Indians as a summer encampment.
