Boston : Houghton Mifflin & Co., 1904. The two documents now first printed in this volume had been for the previous century in the custody of the American Philosophical Society. The first paper is written by Thomas Jefferson while President of the United States, which gives a summary of various claims of France, Spain and England to the territory in the Mississippi Valley, and lays down the boundaries of the Louisiana Purchase. The second manuscript is known as the Dunbar Journal and was kept by William Dunbar of Natchez. It records a voyage of exploration in company with George Hunter undertaken in 1804 under the auspices of Jefferson. It was part of Jefferson's plan to survey the vast new territory just coming into the possession of the United States. This manuscript was presented to the Society by Daniel Parker in 1817. Scarce in the original.
