Ms. copy of a 1769 map made in 1783. Covers Caribbean area, the West Indies, the Gulf of Mexico, and the eastern American coast from South Carolina to the Oronoco River delta.

Detached from a copy of Thomas Southwell's March 10, 1769 proposal to the Spanish government to establish a fishing industry off the coasts of the Yucatán and Honduras as a means to counter rampant smuggling (Ayer MS 1223): Copia del manifiesto que presentó Dn. Tomás Southuel â la Superioridad en el año de 1769 : proponiendo el establecimiento de pescas en las sondas de las Indias Occidentales ê Yslas como el medio mas seguro para poblar y conservarlas; y las costas adjacentes con algunas noticias que tal vez será util tenerlas presentes en los tratados de paz y comercio con los yngleses.
