Abstract: In an area shared by the two states, Pennsylvania and Delaware, there begins and ends a very small, a very powerful, and a very old river. Sometimes called a millstream, sometimes a creek, this river in the prime of its productive life turned close to two hundred mill wheels, although at its widest point it is no more than fifty yards. It rises out of the Welsh mountains and, flowing in multiplicity until it reaches a natural confluence, it matures to pour its waters over a rocky bed through farmlands into Delaware; twenty-five miles in all and with a drop greater than that of Niagara Falls. The name of this river, the Brandywine, stirs the imagination with its sound. Its age makes it old even before the Lenni-Lenape Indians lived close by its bank.
