From Part II detailing the French adventures in Florida between 1562-65. The scene depicts the procession of a native Floridian wedding procession. The Queen-elect is seated in a litter carried by six warriors and surrounded by men carrying musical instruments and weapons and women bearing baskets. This is one of the most attractive engravings from this early history of Florida.
