did not get issued till 1744 when the maps were redated and brought up to date by the additions which I have noted. The Museum 1742 maps are distributed in various places and are all old stock, so there is no evidence whether they were acquired all together at one time."

1743?

The East of St. Augustine Town Castle and Forces before it on the Island of Anastasia. 70.5 x 50.5 cms. Ms. Unsigned, undated. Anonymous.

Original in Brit. Mus. K. 122. 83a. This consists of two maps on the same sheet. The upper part of the sheet is a plan, without a title, of the coast from Fort William to near the east end of Anastasia Island. The lower map has the above title. There is on each side of the lower map a descriptive legend extending from A to Z and from 1 to 8. The maps are undated and are without maker's name; but are evidently of the same period as the "Survey of the Coast from Fort William . . . to Mosquito River" of Justly Watson, 1743, which immediately preceeds it.

Todiman of the Phoenix who was sent with the Pilots of the Men of War on purpose to sound the same." Across the bottom is a map of St. Augustine and vicinity. There is no name, date or place, but it relates to Gen. Oglethorpe's expedition and is apparently of the same date as Justly Watson's "Survey of the Coast of Fort William . . . to Mosquito River A. D. 1743" in the same collection with it.

NOTE.-A copy of this work is in the Library of Congress collection. It is a translation of a portion of Thomas Salmon's Modern history, which relates to America. This view and the maps, however, are not from that work but were made by the dutch cartographer, Isaac Tirion.

For a life of Salmon consult Dictionary of national biography.

The Library of Congress in its collection has a manuscript map which is of sufficient interest to insert here:

Watson, Justly.

A Survey of the Coast from Fort William near St. Iuans River to Mosquito River. A. D. 1743. Mr Justly Watson, Engin 134 x 50.3 cms. Ms. in colors. 1 cart. Original in Brit. Mus. K. 122. 82.

It includes an inset: A Plan of the Town and Fort of St. Augustine, 59 x 24.3 cms., which shows Gen. Oglethorpe's camp, &c. Both maps show the roads &c. and are very interesting.

LC 374

NOTE.-A reduced copy of this map is found in Archer Butler Hulbert's The crown collection, v. 5, nos. 38-39.

The Library of Congress has in the Faden collection, no. 43, a manuscript map entitled: "Map of the coast of Florida, from Talbot island to the mouth of Musquitta river, with plan of St. Augustine, shewing the position of Gen. Oglethorpe's camp &c.' The size answers to the Watson map and they are sufficiently alike for one to be considered as a copy of the other. It has no date or author, and water mark dates about 1735. It may be the original map from which Watson got his information. The scale is the same.
