We now take our leave of the harbour, and will have one cruise out of harbour before we proceed for the shooting'system to France:
To venture after fowl at sea you must have a large boat, with good bearings, that will carry plenty of canvass. Rowing after them scarcely ever answers; but when it blows fresh, a fast sailing

time harassed by the gtinning-punts, I have seen more birds killed under tail from a common boat, than by any other manner of day shoot¬ing. But, to do the business well, a stanchion- gun must

Recollect, when you get on the outside of the harbour, an acci¬dent is no joke; and you have, as Dr. Johnson observes, but one plank between you and eternity. • ' >
