|Further on, on the same side, is the village of Passage, just where the island of Cove, planting itself in the middle of the estuary, leaves only a narrow channel. This channel is what, I presume, is called the Passage; and, in the brilliant view annexed, the reader will find a description, better than any that I could give, of its scenery. It is here the larger class of vessels discharge their cargoes into smaller ones, which carry them up to the city. [p. 188]|
