diaas who hunt here fcldom returning
rritbout having their canoes loaded as
deep as they can fwim. .
H iving juft befort obferved that this
like i theutmo.l northera fpiirce of the
MiiSlppU- I thall here further remark,
that before this river enters the Gulph of
Mexico, it has not run lefs, 'through all
its ra?anderings, thin 'three thoufand
milts ; or, in a ftraight line .jfrom north
to foath, about twenty decrees, -which is
nearly fourteen hundred knglilh miles.
Thefe Indians informed me, that to
the ncrth-weft of JLaks Winnepeek lies
another, whole circumference -vaftly ex
ceeded any they had given me an account
of. They deicribc it as much larger
than Lake Saperior. But as it appears
to be fo ir to the north-weft, I fhould
i.a.iin2 that it was not a lake, but rather
ths Xrchipslago or broksn waters that
form ihe communication betweea Hud
Ion's Bay and the northern parts of the
Pciiij Ocean.
Thsre ate an infinite number of fmall
l-kes, on the more weftem parts of the
ce tera head branches of the Mifliuppi,
as well as between thefe and Lake Win
riepeek, bat none of them are large
enough to fuppofc either of them to be
he lake or waters meant by the Indians.
They likewife informed me, that fome

rhrrs hai c a communication with each
fther, except for a mile, over which
ih-y carry their canoss. And by what
I coald learn fior.2 them, this is the road
they ttke when their v:xr parties make
their excursions upon the Pawaees and
Pawna 'nee?, satins inhabiting fome
hraiches of the MeiTorle riveri In the
country belonging to thefe people it is;
aid, that Mandrake are frequently
found, a fpecirsof rcot refembling hu
man beings of both fcxes ; and that thefe
re more perfect than iuch as are difco
