Sketch of the Bocas or Mouths of the River Atrato. Laid down from observations made by John C Trautwine, Civ Eng

John C. Trautwine was placed at the head of an expedition to explore the Atrato River from its mouth up to the Quito branch, by that to the Raspadura Creek, thence over the summit and down the San Juan to the Pacific. The expedition was funded by Frederick M. Kelley, a wall street banker, under rumors of gold deposits in the area and a possible canal between the atlantic and pacific used by local tribes.
