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. Colored to show Spanish, French, English, Danish and Dutch colonial possessions; also marked to show islands taken in wartime (during the American Revolution?) by the Spanish, French, and English. 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. El Pardo 8 de febrero de 1783.
