Antigua is a fine Island tho’ it has not one
Single Spring of Water in it. So that in –
times of drouth when all their Ponds –
are dry, and their Cisterns almost empty,
they are obliged to fetch their fresh Water
from Montserrat, in times of War; or in times
of Peace from that and Guardaloup a
Neighbouring French Island. ~
St. John the Capital is esteem’d the most regular,
Town in the West Indies, and has the most comodiuous
Harbour of any, belonging to our English Leeward Islands
