A large area comprised of the Pacific Northwest and southern British Columbia is labeled "Western Territory." Alaska is Russian Territory and Mexico occupies California, the Southwest and Texas. The states and provinces are not delineated in this early Hall issue. East of the Rockies the huge area is largely unnamed except for Dakoutas, but the watershed is very well delineated. The map is filled with place names including Indian villages. The title is in a simple rectangular block. Engraved by Sidney Hall.
