The river name seems to be missing, though it is just conceivable that the illegible black ink mark between the mouth and island #33 preserves a trace of it. For the possibility that the island is being named instead, see note under its entry. Typically, however, an island's name appears above it where possible (as here) rather than below. At the same time placement of a river name closer inshore could be expected - not that any such expedient is required here, where the name should readily have fitted at or near the source. Even so, the mapmaker may just have unthinkingly repeated the way in which he named rivers #40, 46, 47, 48 (see note under the entry for river #40 in 4B5).
