the top of the rock I had a walk into Spain, past the line of British
pickets across the 500 yards of neutral territory, past the Spanish
pickets and into the adjoining towns. The Spanish soldiers are worse
than the Portuguese, they wear blue coats, green trousers, and cocked
hats, and look about as fierce as maggots.
There are two towns, English town, and Spanish
town both under the English governor. There was plenty of gambling
going on yesterday morning among the Spaniards.
