The most detailed of the early reports on the Florida peninsula is that of John Gerard William DeBrahm, Surveyor General of the southern district of North America for George III of England. His observations on Florida are contained in a work entitled “History of the Three Provinces, South Carolina, Georgia and East Florida,” in manuscript in the British Museum, with a copy in Harvard University Library. The South Carolina and Georgia sections of this report have been printed but the Florida material is still only in manuscript. A great benefit would be conferred upon students of Colonial Florida if this part were printed also.
