The map depicts the area east of the Mississippi River from James Bay to Cape Canaveral, and locates provincial boundaries, towns, forts, roads, Indian villages, New England fishing waters, etc. An inset is comprised of "Evan's Polymetric Table of Amercia," which provides for the calculation of the distance between most prominent towns. There is text below the map which is missing from this on-line copy and is "A Compendious Account of the British Colonies in North America," which devotes a paragraph of description to each of the North American colonies, including Florida, Canada, and the Province of Quebec as well as Maryland.
