Soon after, the suit came up frtni her vdsjt
to the netlier world, we entered into the
"Tal-ha-okee" or "grass water," as . it is
termed by the Indians; which is an ira-nien-e
sea or level field of saw grass, cover
e 1 with frerdi w ater, varying from fourteen
inches to four feet in depth, rising from in
numerable springs in all parts of the vast
extent. It extendi from latitude twenty
evtn degrees north, down as far as lati ude
twenty-live degrees and twenty minutes to
the southward, van ing from thirtv to sev
ent v. miles in breadth. It receives the name
of "Everglades,

w;iter, and waing in tire breeze gives it at
times, the semblance ot'a vast green u:ean.
its monotonous appearance is relieved liere
and there by groups of Island', which,. in
some n. ensure, serve ai land-marks to the
navigator, as he pushes his w ay through the
meandering channels which renders the
strange lake passable.
For several days w e ras red through the
"grassy water," without meeting anything
worthy of particular note, except occasion
al sign of the cunning and ever watehful
enemy, and had apparently readied the cen

any islands were visible around us; not a
