    9th.  Having made the needful arrangements for a journey to the Knysna and Plettenburgh Bay, we set out on horseback, having a Hottentot named Cobus for our guide.  Cobus and Coos are Dutch contractions of Jacobus.  A ride over a series of grassy hills, interrupted by the deep ravines of the Kaymons Gat Lizards' Hole, and the Trakadataow Rivers, and past two or three cottages, brought us to a house called Woodville, where we found comfortable accommodation in roughish style, and met with a Scotchman, who was useful to us from his knowledge of Dutch.
