Excerpt
The ancient Mexicans likened North America to a Tree—a stupendous Mulberry Tree—"planted in the land known to us today as South 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 be North America, for, 10,000 miles east from southern China brings us to California; and we further find that North America, now reached, is 10,000 le, or over 3,000 miles in width, measuring from the Pacific to the Atlantic.

The Chinese accounts further call our eastern realm a Fu-Sang (or Helpful Mulberry) land.

A Mulberry land (3,000 miles wide) is There, say the Chinese.

The Mulberry land (3,000 miles wide) is Here, say the Mexicans.
