Mr. John Aitchison Abbey St. Bathans
A river or water of considerable Size, which takes its rise in Haddington Shire, & flowing in a S. [South] Easterly direction empties itself into the Whiteadder at abbey St. Bathans.
In character it is somewhat like the Whiteadder flowing through barren Stony heathery hills, desolate & dreary.
In some instances the hills close in, so as to narrow the Valley almost to the bed of the River.
In many instances its banks are bold & precipitous, & present a very fine appearance.
