1822 Notices Of East Florida

Notices of East Florida, with an account of the Seminole nation of Indians. By a traveller in the province :

"The usual undergrowth is the fan palmetto--the roots of which, protruding lengthways out of the soil, give the ground, in many places, the appearance of being floored, or rather, logged over, in every direction, and renders the footing very bad for travelling. These districts, however, afford very good pasturage, and are said by many, to produce corn, potatoes, and the upland rice, very well."
