... First Republic in America, p. 88, Genesis of the United States,
vol. ii., p. 947). It is only necessary to consult a map of the
Chesapeake with its many rivers and creeks, both large and small,
flowing into it from the west to see how improbable it is that a
vessel delayed in its voyage by stress of weather and short of
provisions would ascend it to the Potomac before making harbour,
and how readily the vague data of the letter can be applied to any
of its numerous affluents, both as to the landing-place, the site
of the mission, and the distance to the Alleghanies. In the absence
of further particulars the term "braco de mar por donde se ha de

Bay, Piankatank River, and the Rappahannock as well as to the
Potomac, into some small river either above or below the mouth of
any of which the Jesuits may have entered, since no direction is
given. While it is equally impossible to assert that the rivers
visited by the Jesuits were not the Potomac and the Rappahannock,
yet in view of the absence of any substantial evidence to establish
their identity the question must remain an open one until more
definite information is produced, notwithstanding the high
authority of Dr. Shea. APPENDIX FF MAPA DE LA FLORIDA Y LAGUNA DE
