“As this pamphlet is not intended to be a traveller’s guide to the Bermudas, I refrain from entering into any description of the Islands, whose beauties have been already immortalized by no less a celebrity than Tom Moore… I may, however, mention that the group is said to consist of 365 Islands. The scenery is picturesque, but quite in miniature; there is a great deal of wood, of small growth, principally cedar; oleanders, of various hues, grow wild in profusion; and the soil is rich, and capable of producing anything” (pages 82–83).
