This is undoubtedly a later version of this chart which the Library of Congress lists as a 6th state edition, with the number 13 engraved in a small oval in the upper right corner. The chart relies on the soundings and nautical Remarks of Lt. John Knight, a hydrographer who contributed a great deal to surveys of this region (see also Heritage Charts A101 and A113).
