A nice map of North America including the West Indies. Colored by nation and including dotted line boundaries for U.S. western territories. These include the large territories of Washington and Oregon (with their eastern borders on the Rocky Mountains), Utah (bordering Kansas), and New Mexico. Arizona is named in a small southern section of New Mexico, apparently bound in the east and west by the Rio Grande and Rio S. Pedro. This is a representation of the proposed new territory that we have not seen on any other map.
