Moxia is the country of the Morduanians, one tribe of whom call
themselves Mokscha, or Moxa. - Forst.
 This word signifies the New Castle; of this name there are two cities
and provinces in European Russia, Novogorod proper, and Nisney
Novogorod: The former is the one here meant. - E.
 This is near Wilna in Lithuania. - Forst.
 I imagine that Slonym is here meant; formerly a place of note, and
which used to be the appanege of one of the Lithuanian princes.
 Varsonich is an evident corruption for Varsovich, or Warsaw, the
capital of Masurea or Masovia. - Forst.
 It is not easy to determine the situation of Mersaga; but, as on the
borders of Poland, towards Brandenburgh, and in the direction of
Francfort on the Oder, it is probable that Meseriz, or Miedzyrzyez, is
here meant. - Forst.
