thirty leagues. The Touraxouslins and
Kikapoos are fifteen leagues in the interior,
from the banks of the river; two hundred
leagues from the junction of the River Illinois,
and from thence two hundred leagues
to the Falls of St. Anthony. The rivers of

Otenta and Osage are near one another, and
are situated in the prairies, one hundred and

Ouabache. The village is situated seventy
leagues upwards, on the bank of the river.
