001 ; 002 ; 005 ; 006 A river, or as it is termed Water, which takes its rise in the Lammermoor Hills, in Haddington shire, at a place Called "White Well", & flowing in a S. [South] Easterly direction empties itself into the Tweed a little S.W [South West] of Berwick upon Tweed. This river or Water rises in one of the Wildest districts in the South of Scotland & in its Course passes through varied Scenery; occasionally through flat haughs, but generally through places where the hills close in, so as to narrow the valley almost to the bed of the river. At Preston Mill & Haugh, the river escapes from the wild, rocky, Mountainous Country, entering the beautiful Valley in which the Tweed runs. The richest fields Succeed the barren waste, woodlands, orchards & highly Cultivated grounds bespeak wealth & Comfort. The river itself partakes of the character of the Country, running in gentle streams over pebbly-beds, alternating with long reaches of Still water.
