Next day Baudin, evidently realising the enormity of his folly, veered round, and returned to Nepean Bay.
The Nepean and Phillip Islands lie to the south of the main island.
Around this trap-range lies the fertile district of the Cowpastures, watered by the Nepean river.
At the extremity of the Nepean is the most extensive tract of land that has yet been discovered.
The red lines end abruptly on the far side of a curve in the course of the river Nepean, where swamps and hills are shown.
In the valleys of the Hawkesbury and Nepean rivers, the richness of the soil is very great, and the plains are extensive.
I went this morning to Nepean, to speak about sending you the official accounts of the King's health.
Mrs. Nepean has perhaps just succeeded, but only just; and we will agree, therefore, to call her style vividly enthusiastic.
In Nepean Bay there is a deficiency of water, which is not the case in either of the last mentioned places.
Captain Nepean has paid every attention to me, and has been so kind as to let us have a cooper: he dines with me to-morrow.
