2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 of valley,  but generally the coast is more abrupt than the western.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 Nearly opposite to Arona is the considerable Lombard Village
of Angera,  above which is the castle of Count Borromeo in
good order-   but our steamer slights that coast by again
skirting the west coast   although the width is not great enough to
prevent, if the travel encouraged it.     We can see an occa-
sional village, but very few villas.   Its not the fashionable side.
There is but
little commerce
upon this lake
The quiet lazy-
roni(?) villages
make but little
us of shipping.
Only a few
sharp pointed           [-Castle of Count Borromeo-]
barges of small        [-Lombard village of Angera-]
capacity with one insignificant square sail on a slender spar.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 In front of Pallanza are moored 30 or 40 Barges, some perhaps
having a capacity of 50 tons,  but nearly all are rusty and empty,
while a few are being loaded with bags, hay, or manure, by
a few straggling laborers  who move as though they intended the
loading should occupy a week

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 A few minutes after leaving Arona we again have a
good view of the colossal statue ^of^ “Saint Carlo” upon an
eminence perhaps a quarter of a mile from the shore
It is the statue of Count Carlo Borromeo Archbishop of Milan
