A draughtsman's note in red ink, dated 28 April 1834, explains the corrections made to a small area of the west coast of the island, verifying the accuracy of the alterations made by Lieutenant Denham. Thomas Compton's original survey of the island made in 1804 was found to be incorrect, hence this revision.
