To orient the sketch further and substantiate the above conclu-
sions, run a line representing 92 west longitude (west of Green-
wich), striking just west of Lake Terminos on the south side of
the Gulf and west of Espiritu Sancto, or the Mississippi, on the
north side. Run another line representing 880 west longitude
cutting Yucatan and the waters east of Yucatan and striking the
north side of the Gulf at Garay's upper boundary. Measure the
distance between these two longitudinal lines, and with this meas-
urement as a guide, draw lines representing 960, 84, and 800 west
longitude. A study of a map marked with Greenwich lines will
show that the sketch is astoundingly accurate. Although Yucatan
does not extend far enough to the north and the sketch is out of
proportion north of the twenty-fourth degree of north latitude
and south of the twentieth degree of north latitude, the detail on
the Mexican Coast between these two meridians is most accurate.
