The overall effect of this chart is simplicity, accuracy and beauty.  It bears no published date, but is identical to later states of the chart included in the Atlantic Neptune folio, except that the land is unusually tinted blue.  In other respects it equates to the 1781 published versions. 

The charts shows a great deal of detail from north of the Duxborough River to the mouth of Ell River south of the town. The map is immensely detailed, typical of the work of Thomas Wheeler and Charles Blaskowitz who collaborated on the original survey of the area, and they include property, boundaries and homesteads.  The depiction of fields and marsh land is exquisite and gives the whole image a very soft texture.  The town of Plymouth shows clearly shows both road lay-out and wharfs.  In all likelyhood the hydrographical information was compiled by Lt. John Knight who was also working in the region at the time.   In this case it shows soundings, sand banks and vital tidal information.
