`Bishop’s Hamiltonian was introduced about  …, and was kept here [Shoreham, VT.] several years. His progeny were of a dark bay color, well formed; rather tall in proportion to weight of body; were good travelers, high spirited; among the best horses for the road, and were favorites in the market in their day. Much of the valuable stock in this town originated from him.` HISTORY OF SHOREHAM, VERMONT.
