2 1 4 Notes

Cape de los Esclavos = Taipu point.

Rio de Navidad = Para river.

Rio Maranon = western branch of Amazona.

Rio de los Esclavos = Araguary river.

Unfortunately, the distance between the two
extreme points (48 5 49 55 ) amounts to much
more than 20 leagues, even of leagues measuring only
1 7J- to an equatorial degree.

(169) Page 148. "Este Cabo de los Esclavos
esta en la punta de la boca del rio Maranon . . . su
entrada en la mar no es un solo braco, como se dira
quando en adelante se tra&e del viaje que por el
hizo Francisco de Orellana . . . entran las aguas
de aqueste rio con mucho impetu en la mar, y dentro
della, diezo doce leguas, se coje deste rio agua
dul^e ; e aquel embocamiento hace alia dentro dos
bracos prencipales, y al mas oriental llaman rio de
Navidad ; y el mas occidental es el que guarda el
proprio nombre de Maranon . . . Este rio es cosa
muy notable y senalada en la pintura de la cosmo-
graphia por sus grandecas . . . desde el Cabo de
San6l Augustin . . * hasta llegar al embocamiento y
atravessarle, al rio Maranon hay trescientas cinquenta
y ocho leguas, poco mas 6 menos. . . . Este embo
camiento, que tan senalada cosa hizo Dios en el
mundo, se llamo un tiempo Mar Dulce." Oviedo,
lib. xxi., cap. iii., vol. ii., p. 123. The description
of Orellana s voyage (op. czt. y vol. iii., pp. 382-390
and 542-572) does not contain technical details
which could be of use in the present inquiry.
