    • Fages (soldier) `one comes in sight of a long, bare point of land, on the eastern side of which a great estuary penetrates inland by two separate arms, which are probably about half a league distant from each other. This estuary runs close to the north side of a small hill which rises on a point of land and has the appearance of an island… The estuary spreads continually over the level ground eastward, forming various swamps and ponds of considerable extent…’
