A cluster of small rocky islands lying off the Labrador coast, just outside the Straits of Bell Isle, forms Battle Harbour. An encounter of some of the early settlers with the Eskimaux, is supposed to have given its name to the spot. The " room" (as a merchant's establishment is called on this coast,) represented in Plate 15, belongs to Messrs. Slade, of Poole.
