Vol. VI of the Publications of the Mississippi Historical Soci-
ety contains a paper on the Route of De Soto's Expedition from
Taliepacana to Huhasene by Professor T. H. Lewis, in which he
essays to mark out the line of Moscoso's trip. Professor Lewis
locates Guachoya, where Moscoso started, near Arkansas City, in
southeastern Arkansas, on the Mississippi River. The salt lake in
the province of Aguacay is placed about two miles south of Arka-
delphia, on the west side of the Ouachita. The route is made to
cross Red River at White Oak Shoals, about three miles east of
the Texas line. Thence it turns westward, and the province of
Aays, which was reached about eighteen days after crossing Red
River is located south of Gainesville, Texas. The difficulty offered
by the fact that the Aays (Aes) were in eastern Texas in the early
part of the eighteenth century is removed by assuming their migra-
tion. At Soacatino, some two days march further west, the route
turns southwest, and Guasco, reached later, is identified as the "ear-
liest home of the Wacoes." The Daycao River at which terminates
the march of ten days west from Guasco is judged to be the Double
Mountain fork of the Brazos. Thence the Spaniards return to
the Mississippi the way they came.
The volume containing this paper is a book of over five hundred
and fifty pages, which makes a most creditable showing for the
Society. The credit due is reflected also on the State of Missis-
sippi, which is giving the Society substantial support in its work.
The example is one that Texas might well follow.
