Amen. This Twenty fifth Day of Jan, 1741, I Aaron Huntly of
Lyme, New London, CT, in New England, being of sound
mind and memory thanks be to God for it, yet calling to mind
the mortality of my body and knowing that it is appointed

by me at any time whatsoever and I do confirm this to

4l) Harpers Magazine, Vol 52, Number 309, Page 318, Feb
1876: In describing the old Huntley house, still standing over
two hundred years since being built; "Turning North from the
Waite Mansion you are confronted by a quaint homestead
which seems to be taking life comfortably right in the middle
of the street. Venerable trees rise above it and their
branches droop over it's small paned windows. It's door-
step is foot worn, it's hall of entrance of a pre-Revolutionary
 pattern and it's whole architecture one sided; but it has
an unmistakable air of gentility. If you enter you are
plunged headlong into an antiquarian mine, panelled walls,
curious cornices, enormous fire places. High mantels and
round tables bring all your forefathers and foremothers
round you in their powdered wigs and high heeled shoes.
The chairs and pictures are many of them two hundred
years old. You may presume before you get to it that the street
ends plump against the little door yard fence. No, the street is
guilty of no such impertinence. It dodges politely around
the edifice and pursues it's otherwise unbending course
as if accustomed to trifling obstructions."
