A New Voyage Vol. I.
They have turned a little branch of the River
Leek, and made it pass through the Town; the
Waters is so clear and good, that they need
seek for no other; there are Four or Five Tow-
ers upon this Arm of the River , on the tops os
which they have made Ponds, and the Mills
which are below cause Pumps to play, which lift
up the Water, and fill those Ponds or Cisterns,
from whence it is distributed throughout all the
City. I mult not forget to mention the Fountains
of Augsburg, which are one of its principal Orna-
ments. There are many of them which are al-
most as magnificent as the fine Fountain at Nu-
remberg. lam,

IObserved at my going out of Augsburg, in ma-
ny Gardens, that they cover all their Vines
and Fig-Trees, carefully with Straw or Mats, to
preserve them srom the Frost; the Cold being
Sharper in this Country than in England, where
we are not obliged to make use of these Precau-
tions, though we lie nearer the North. It is cer-
tainly.true, that the divers degrees of Heat and
Cold, are not always proportion’d to the diversity
of Climates: There are terrible Winters in Ca-
nada in the midst of the temperate Zone, where-
as every where else, under the same Climate,
they enjoy a sweet and pleasant Air.
