    Bearing notation along lower margin of having been engraved for Payne's Geography.Interesting early map of the U. S. with all beyond the Mississippi River labelled Louisiana. First states fully west of the Appalachian Mountains are “Kentuckey†(sic) and “Tennassee†(sic). Georgia extends to the Mississippi River, while Florida remains a Spanish possession running across the Gulf coast to New Orleans. A full quarter of the U. S. is taken up by the “N: W: Territory†the northwestern border of which is the “Grand Portage†from Lake Superior to Wood Lake. Clarksville, Tennassee appears the westernmost U. S. settlement (though, in reality, only the mistake in magnetic declination of the early surveyors failed to place it in Kentuckey. But that is a whole other story. Professionally washed and laid down.
