Description Engraving of River Tweed showing two salmon pools, with house in distance. Titled: 'The Carrowel & the Noirs, two celebrated Salmon casts in the River Tweed, with the woods and farmhouse of Langlee between the towns of Galashiels and Melrose. The property of the Right Honble. Lord Sommerville. The rock in the center of the River in the foreground was the cause of the sad loss of lives about eighty years ago. The Ferry boat full of people going to Melrose Fair broke from its moorings and was split to pieces on it. Twenty people were said to have been carried down by the current and drowned. Ten saved themselves by hanging to the Mane of a horse; this powerful animal landed them all in safety. London, published by Longman, Hurst & Rees, 1 May 1815.'
