Goof-up from a time when East India Company had just arrived at Mughal courts:
Kyshmier [Kashmir]. The Cheefe Citty is called Sirinakar [Srinagar]. The Riuer of Bhat [Behat or Jehlam] passeth through it and findeth the Sea by Ganges or, some say, of it self in the North Part of the Bay of Bengala. It bordereth Cabul to the East Southerly. It is all Mountaines.From the Appendix to 'The embassy of Sir Thomas Roe to the court of the Great Mogul, 1615-1619, as narrated in his journal and correspondence' (1899).
A note in the book does point out the obvious error in sending Vitasta eastwards and mentions that William Baffin's map from 1619 of Mughal empire , based on Sir Thomas Roe's account did get the direction of the river right.
