The Great Slides
In this despatch, Douglas refers to The Great Slides as one of the passes of ominous fame, so notorious in the history of the Colony, along with Jackass Mountain, The Cleft, and The Rocking Bridges. These features' general location is in the Cariboo region of British Columbia. As of this writing, however, the exact location of this pass remains unknown.
