This small map of North America shows the young United States confined to east of the Mississippi River. Florida is divided into East and West Florida, and a prominent River of the West flows into the Pacific at the Entrance of Juan de Fuca. The west coast is labeled New Albion with a few place names along the coast including Sir Francis Drake's Harbor. The interior is largely blank with the exception of some limited topography and the river systems including a note that states the "Missouri Navigable 1300 Miles." Engraved by Thomas Conder.
