Japura, or Caqueta, a tributary of the Amazon, has its source in the Colombian Andes, about 25 miles from the town of Mocoa, Colombia, and after a south-easterly course of some 700 miles, during which it skirts the N.E. boundary of Ecuador and enters Brazil, it joins other tributaries near San Antonio de Maripi, previously to their entering the mother stream some 100 miles further south. It is navigable for about 500 miles.

“God often bestows temporal prosperities on the wicked, to show how lightly he esteems what the world is so dazzled with; but crosses he reserves for his own, whom he would humble under his Almighty hand, and make them the objects of his delight.”
