Barbara McTaggart writes, "The designer of the stamp did not copy the
original too faithfully, omitting part of the inscription. However, it
was Mason himself who drew it upside down." On the orientation of the
map, see the compass rose. It is clearly marked with South at the top.
The inscription is below the words,
LAND. It reads,
"Described by Captaine John Mason." What is omitted reads, "an
industrious Gent who spent seven years in the Country." Also the stamp
omits a coat of arms under the scale on the original.
