to convey in words my idea of the figure of the parish. It is not even all in Selkirkshire, for there are two portions of it in the County of Roxburgh. The extent of the principal division, from Caudonlee (Stow Ph [Parish]) on the North, to Wool Burn on the South, is about 7 miles & a half; and from Easter Kershope (Yarrow Parish) on the west, to whitmoor Loch on the East, about 8 miles

The principal division is bounded on the N. [North] by Stow; on the N E [North East] by Galashiels; on the East by Galashiels & Selkirk in Roxburghshire on the south by Ashkirk in Roxburghshire - on the S [South] West by Kirkhope, & on the west & N.W. [North West] by Yarrow
