Description:

This coast shows to the sailor, as he approaches, little beyond a succession of those lofty cliffs of slate, which induced the Northmen in the tenth century to give it the name of Helluland (Slate land). The vessel seems to be running right for this wall of rock ; until, when close upon it, a narrow entrance is found between heights from 600 to 700 feet high, which being passed, the harbour is opened, whose landlocked waters are covered with shipping, and the enclosing hills with the buildings of St. John's.

As you go up the harbour the town is mostly on your right ; on the left is a lofty range of hills covered with forest, consisting of different species of spruces and pines, with a slight sprinkling of birch, mountain ash, and alder ; before you the slopes of the valley are covered with cultivation ; behind is a rugged range of rocky heights, which forms the back ground of Plate 3.
