714. Sir Peter Colleton to his honoured friend John Locke. Mr. Ogilby is printing a Relation of the West Indies and wishes to get a map of Carolina. Desires he will get of my Lord (Ashley) the maps of Cape Fear and Albemarle, and Colleton will draw them into one with that of Port Royal, and will wait upon my Lord for the nomination of the rivers, &c.; and if Locke would do them the favour to draw a discourse to be added to this map in the nature of a description such as might invite people without seeming to come from us, it would very much conduce to the speedy settlement, and be a very great obligation to the writer.
