This city is located on two hills, at the place where the lake finishes which bears today its name, & which one called formerly lake LÃ©man. The situation is very – pleasant; one sees on a side the lake, other the Rhone, with the surroundings laughing campaign, of the covered slopes of country houses along the lake, & with a few miles the always frozen tops of the Alps, which paroissent money mountains when they are lit by the sun in the beautiful days.The wearing of Geneva on the lake with piers, its boats, its markets, &c. & its position [ p. 575B ] between France, Italy & Germany, make it rich & commercial industrial.
It has several beautiful buildings & of the pleasant walks; the streets are enlightened the night, & one built on the Rhone an extremely simple pump machine, which provides water to the most raised districts, with hundred feet top.The lake is approximately ten – eight miles length, & four to five in its greater width.
