018.05 ; 018.09 ; 018.10 A river or as it is termed "Water" which takes its rise in the Lammermoor hills in Haddingtonshire at a place Called White Well, & flowing in a S. [South] Easterly direction empties into the Tweed, a little S.W. [South West] of Berwick.
This river or water rises in one of the wildest districts in the South of Scotland; & in its course passes through Varied scenery, sometimes 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 and highly Cultivated grounds bespeak wealth & comfort. The river itself partakes of the character of the Country, running in gentle streams over a pebbly bed, alternating with long reaches of Still water.
