Excerpt from A Relation of the Colony of the Lord Baron of Baltimore, in Maryland, Near Virginia: A Narrative of the First Voyage to Maryland
It is admitted that the situation of the region is the best and most advantageous; for it extends towards the north to the thirty-eighth or fortieth degree of latitude, in the same position of place with Saville, Sicily, and Jerusalem, and not unlike the best portions and climate of Arabia Felix. The air is serene and mild, neither exposed to the burning heat of Florida or eu cient Virginia, nor withered by the cold of New England, but has a medium temperature between the two - enjoys the ad vantages of each, and is free from their inconveniences. On the east it is washed by the ocean on the west it adjoins an almost boundless continent, which extends to the China sea.
