Includes ms. note: Mashpee [14?] Dec. 1785, This plan of the Indian Plantations here gives a view of the face of it altho the distances are not all of them accurately drafted and Martha's Vineyard as I had not enough room on this paper to set it in a proper view may be a mile nearer than it should have been. Such as it is, I [have?] sent it with my humble respects to the Rev. Isaac Smith. Gideon Hawley.
