This issue was "Reduced from original and drawn by Washington Hood and Richard S. Smith" in 1835 after the large-scale map. It covers the area around Pensacola from the Gulf at Grand Lagoon and Foster's Island (present-day Perdido Key) and includes Cox's and West Lagoons, now called Bayou Grande and Bayou Chico. Hundreds of soundings are recorded. Kearny credits Lieuts. Thompson, Turnbull and Butler of the 4th Artillery in the chart's preparation. A very nice example of this rarely seen chart.
