Filled with detail including forts, Indian tribes, and watershed. The West is nearly blank except several Pueblos are shown in the vicinity of Santa Fe. The West Coast is a blank, nearly straight line, above Drake's Port. Many interesting notations including "These Parts are Intirely [sic] Unknown." The Red River is here labeled "R. Rouge but little known."
