but these mines are now almost all filled with water.
Some mines of quicksilver have been discovered,
but the working of them has been forbid. Here
is little of the cattle kind, and no cloth manufac

the exception of a sort of thick quilt, which they
call Chuces ; and a kind of grain is gathered here,
