PRINCIPAL RIVERS.
This county is well watered by the rivers, Eden, Loder, Ken, and Lune, or Lon. The Eden, which is one of the most considerable rivers in the North of England, has its source in the very wildest part of this county, not far from the borders of Yorkshire, passes by the town of Appleby, and runs on to the N.W. into Cumberland, being joined in its progress by several streamlets from the N.E. part of the county, called Stanmore. Of this river the common people have a singular tradition that Uter Pendragon endeavoured to change the course of this river, but found all his efforts of no effect; and the tradition is still preserved by the following lines:-
'Let Uter Pendragon do what he can,
The river Eden will run as it ran.'

The most noble River in this County [Westmoreland] is the Eden, or Ituna of Ptolomy, which we mentioned in Cumberland. It rises at a Place called Hugh Seat Morville, or Hugh Morvill's Hill, ... In its long Course it receives twelve Rivers and Brooks, some of which are considerable Streams; so that before it joins the Eimot, 'tis a very large River. Tradition says that Uter Pendragon made great Efforts to bring this River from its old Channel, but to no Purpose, which gave Occasion for the Rhyme,
Let Uter Pendragon do what he can, / The River Eden will run as it ran.

I walked round the walls [of Carlisle] and saw the river, ... called the Emount ... the other river is the Essex which is very broad and ebbs and flows about a mile or two off; ...
...
... leaving this river [Eamont] I came to the Essex which is very broad and hazardous to crosse even when the tyde is out, by which it leaves a broad sand on each side which in some places is unsafe - made me take a good Guide which carry'd me aboute and a crosse some part of it here and some part in another place, it being deep in the channell where I did crosse which was in sight of the mouth of the river that runs into the sea; on the sand before the water was quite gone from it, I saw a great bird which look'd almost black picking up fish and busking in the water, it looked like an Eagle and by its dimentions could scarce be any other bird.
