"This country, above all others we have seen, is well supplied also with beautiful lakes, full of fish and very large. They are a kind of speciality here. There contains islands rising to some height and very beautiful. The lords of the land usually appropriate them as places of safety and refuge, as well as habitation. They are inaccessible except to boats."
