[Parish], to that of Carmichael, its banks are very low, is extremely crooked & deep, and owing to the land on either side lying low & flat, it very frequently inundates it, leaving the, then, appearance of a vast Lock, the Pasture lands receive a great benefit from these inundations, but the crops are not infrequently spoiled by them. There is from 6 to 7 miles of the River in this Parish.
