To the right honourable, the Earl of Shelbourne, His Majesty's principal Secretary of State for the Southern Department : this plan of the colony of Connecticut in North-America is humbly dedicated

Moses Park, a surveyor from Preston, Connecticut, executed this map in 1766 with the assistance of Asa Spaulding of Norwalk and Samuel Mott of Preston. Displayed here is the second state of the map, which differs from the first state in the collection of the Clements Library at the University of Michigan. In this state, an "e" has been added to the name of Shelburne, and "Connecticut R." is seen on the bend of the river above Hadham. Other locational changes have been made in this state as well.
