Excerpted from the journals of Dr. Mer La Jeune, Physician, S.S Livingston, year of our Lord 1807 ~ "Landing at the first sight of the islands, our party was met by an astonishing sight. All about the beach, corned beasts frolicked and grazed. These are much like our horses but leaner and somehow unearthly. Yet, this was to be the least of our surprises. As the Archipelago opens to us, each islet delivers up new wonders to outdo the last: coroneted bushes able to mimic the mating calls of local fauna; salamanders with membranous wings where forepaws would be; wingless birds able to swim as fish; naturally occurring springs from which flow liquids as intoxicating as those conjured in our finest distilleries..."
