Douglas Head

Date made: August 1843

Description: “When I had been on Douglas Head one day, I had seen some mountains at a distance, and this day I set out with the intention of ascending the highest, if it were not too far. By paying strict attention to a map I had purchased, I have very little occasion to ask any questions respecting roads, distances, or places.” (Miss Weeton, Journal of a Governess, May 25th 1812, M 08236)
