161.The whole country around Delft, with the exception of some contiguous gardens and potato beds, consists of rich pasturage; and a great number of very fine cattle were grazing in the meadows. No appearance of tillage, except small patches of stubble here and there, and a few enclosures of clover. The same kind of villas, parks, and gardens as those we had passed, continue from Delft to the Hague. (Ibid. p. 71.)
