St. Johnsbury Caledonian (St. Johnsbury, Vermont) October 18, 1872: "Strong talk is being made of starting a new branch of business in this place [Cabot, Vermont] - that of manufacturing scythe stones. A ledge is being opened on the farm of Mr. Frederick Corlis, about one mile from the village, which certainly produces a most excellent quality of whetstones, and by good judges is said to produce the best grit in the country."
