The ancient Mexicans likened North America to aT ree a stupendous Mulberry Tree planted in the land known to us today asS outh America (n. 5). The Chinese geographers or mythologists teach that at a distance of 30,000 le (10,000 miles) to the east there Is a land 10,000 le (over 3,000) miles in width. Now the land referred to must beN orth A merica, for, 10,000 miles east from southern China brings us to California; and we further find thatN orth A merica, now reached, is 10,000 le, or over 3,000 miles in width, measuring from the Pacific to the A tlantic. The Chinese accounts further call our eastern realm a Fu-S ang (or Helpful Mulberry) land. AM ulberry land (3,090 miles wide) is There, say the Chinese. The Mulberry land (3,000 miles wide) is Here, say theM exicans. Like theM exicans, the Chinese sages declare that there Is an enormous Tree the Fu (or helpful) Sang Tree-in the eastern Mulberry land 3,000 miles wide. As just remarked, the Chinese call the enormous Eastern Tree aS ang, and theM exicans call their enormous Tree aB eb (both terms standing for theM ulberry, a fact to which no writer hitherto has directed, or called, attention.) Observe (see Figure 2) that at Tehauntepec (a little west of Yucatan) our continent narrows down to a width of 100 miles (or 300 Chinese le). The Mexicans say thatN orth America Is aT ree, and that It has a correspondingly enormous Trunk, which at Tehauntepec measures 100 miles (or 300 Chinese le). Now the Chinese writers declare that the enormous Mulberry in the region east of the Flowery Kingdom has aT runk of 300 le (or 100 miles.) What a prodigious dimension I (see note 5.) AM ulberry Tree, wilh aT runk of 300 le, is There, say the Chinese. AM ulberry Tree, with aT runk of 300 le, is Here, say theM exicans. Such a stupendous Tree ought to have enormous Branches to match the Trunk, and we are not surprised when infor(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
