It was only with great difficulty that the Seniavine entered coquille harbour.
On the 9th of the same month the coquille anchored at Payta.

For a distance of seventy-five miles inland the coquille Valley is capable of extensive agricultural development.
The cattle were soon landed and eating their fill on the rich tract of littoral between Utwé and coquille.
The two vessels stood on; the Ouzel Galley was rapidly approaching the land, while the coquille was getting further from it.
At length a look of content overspread his face as the Captain said he would not touch the cocoa-nuts in coquille harbour.
He had just returned from his visit to the Champion; he was full of what he had heard of her engagement with the coquille.
In another minute two well-armed boats were lowered from the stranger, and soon came alongside the “coquille.”
