Conways lies on both sides of the river Saco, which falls into the Atlantic ocean, in Maine, between the towns of Saco and Biddeford. It is about sixty miles distant from Portland; and the principal road from Portland to the White Mountains, passes through Conway. There is a fine view of these remarkable mountains from Conway; and they are at the distance of about thirty miles. A distant view of thein is given in the engraving above. The scenery about Conway is interesting and picturesque in a high degree. It is a flourishing town of nearly two thousand inhabitants. The soil is excellent; a great part being alluvial, or intervale.  But the river sometimes rises suddenly, by the freshets, nearly twenty feet above its usual level; which sweep off the bridges, and cause other evils and inconveniences to the inhabitants. Conway is adjoining Fryeburgh, in the county of Oxford, Maine; and it is nearly the same distance from Concord, the capital of New Hampshire, that it is from Portland. The view here presented, contains some evergreens of the fir kind; and a hut, or log house, such as were, and still are the dwellings of the early settlers in New Hampshire and Maine.
