Details: No runs of fresh water were seen in my excursions; but Mr. Charles Grimes surveyor-general of New South Wales afterwards found several, and in particular, a small river falling into the northern head of the port. Mr. Grimes was sent by governor King, in 1803, to walk round, and survey the harbour; and from his plan I have completed my chart of Port Phillip. The parts of the coast left unshaded are borrowed from him, and the soundings written at right angles are those of his companion, Lieutenant Robbins.
