A View on the North West arm--original.--The latter need scarcely be added; few painters worth copying would select such a scene from our Arm. There are spots on the piece of water, called the Arm, which approach the sublime; . . . This view represents none of these. Take a piece of rather well coloured water; surround it with brushwood; launch a couple of shallops going astray over the water; place a few Indians, with features dimly seen, in a position where they should not be; and some sportsmen, with their backs purposely turned to you, where they never are; and you have a 'View of the North West Arm.' . . . [P. 131.]
