Unfortunately, The Bottom Of It Is Concealed By Jutting Rocks And Promontories, And The Volume Of Water Is Rather Small; Otherwise, This Fall Would, On Account Of Its Height, Which Is Certainly More Than 400 Feet, Deserve To Be Classed Among The Most Celebrated Ones With Which I Am Acquainted.

The road from the fort to the Diadem is extremely fatiguing, and fully three hours are required to accomplish the journey.

The prospect here is even more magnificent than from the fort, as the eye beholds the sea over two sides of the island at the same time.

This excursion was my last in this beautiful isle, as I was obliged to embark on the next day, the 17th of May. The cargo was cleared, and the ballast taken on board. All articles to which the French troops are accustomed, such as flour, salted meat, potatoes, pulse, wine, and a variety of others, have to be imported. {86}

I felt extremely reluctant to leave; and the only thing that tended at all to cheer my spirits, was the thought of my speedy arrival in China, that most wonderful of all known countries.

We left the port of Papeiti on the morning of the 17th of May, with a most favourable wind, soon passed in safety all the dangerous coral-reefs which surround the island, and in seven hours' time had lost sight of it altogether. Towards evening, we beheld the mountain ranges of the island of Huaheme, which we passed during the night.
