Ectract from the "Budget" published by Septimus Wells, Grenada, B.W.I. 16th March 1911 - Grenada 1833 - from Transatlantic Sketches by Captain J.E.Alexander - "The great attraction in Grenada is the Grang Etang or Lake on the summit of a mountain, apparently an extinct volcano. A pleasant tempered and handsome young Irishman, Captain Otway of the Island Rangers, agreed to accompany me to visit the 'lion' so we mounted at six in the morning and rode out of town. We passed under Hospital Hill where the British under Lord Macartney made such a notable defence against the expedition of the Count D'Estaing in 1779."
