Transcription

37 almost insignificant banks low treeless unpicturesque, at one place very narrowly contracted in gorge so that at low water can almost be jumped. Some places crags crowned with castles. Every [bald] sheerwalled crag has been utilized as a stronghold in the days of fighting. One castle right on the brink of the fall left side. At Basle the river is a broad stately clear stream seems to show life apart 38 from natural flow- the channel appearing level. Not navigable to any great extent above Basle. Used mostly to float timber to market. Fine trout in Lake Constance. Baggage examined 5 or 6 times between Basle & Rhorsack [Rorschach] a sublime nuisance & discouragement to travel.
