The Grass In This Vale Is Of A Good Quality, And Very Abundant; And A Rivulet Of Fine Water Runs Along It From The Eastward, Which Unites Itself At The Western Extremity Of The Vale With Another Rivulet, Containing Still More Water.

The junction of these two streams forms a very fine river, now called by the governor Cox's River; which

Takes its course, as has since been re-ascertained, through the Prince Regent's Glen, and empties itself into the River Nepean; and it is conjectured from the nature of the country through which it passes, that it must be one of the principal causes of the floods which have been occasionally felt on the low banks of the River Hawkesbury, into which the Nepean discharges itself. The Vale of Clwyd from the base of Mount York, extends six miles in a westerly direction, and has its termination at Cox's River. Westward of this river the country again becomes hilly, but is generally open, forest land, and very good pasturage. Three miles to the westward of the Vale of Clwyd, Messrs. Blaxland, Wentworth, and Lawson, had formerly terminated their excursion; and when the various difficulties are considered which they had to contend with, especially until they had effected the descent from Mount York, to which place they were obliged to pass through a thick brushwood, where they were under the necessity of cutting a passage for their baggage horses, the severity of which labour had seriously affected their healths - their patient endurance of such fatigue cannot fail to excite much surprise and admiration.
