STATION IV. Rawlinson's-nab is a peninsular-rock, of a circular
figure, swelling to a crown in the centre, covered with a low
wood; there are two of them, but it is from the crown of the
interior nab, you have the present surprising view of two fine
sheets of water, that bend different ways.
The view to the south, is bounded on both sides by a bold and various shore. The hills are wooded and rough, but spotted in parts with small inclosures, and their tops burst into rocks of various shapes.
