A. A Plat Exhibiting the State of the Surveys in the State of Florida with References, (26.4 x 24.3"). This is a later edition of a map that was published in a few different congressional reports in the late 1840s.

C. D. Diagram: of Tampa Land District Shewing Those Townships in Which Swamp Lands Lists Have Been Sent Up..., (10.4 x 15.8"). Similar to the map above with only surveying information. Condition: Issued folding with a binding trim at lower left that results in some loss of border and text.
