Caption reads: Many of the best are left; one remarkable for its height and straightness of trunk is represented in Plate I. This tree goes by the name of the Duke's walking-stick; its height to the top is 111 feet 6 inches; to the branches (a) 70 feet 6 inches; and the circumference at the bottom; taking. in some projecting spurs, is 21 feet; and the circumference at one yard high is 14 feet, at two yards high 12 feet; the solid contents 440 feet; and the weight 11 tons. All these circumstances taken together, it may I think be doubted whether this admirable tree can be matched by any other in the kingdom.
