Item # 219380

April 16, 1832

NEW-YORK EVENING POST, April 16, 1832.
* Early exploration of the Rocky Mountains
* Col. Henry Leavenworth

Pg. 2 has various particulars offered by a member of an expedition authorized by Congress to explore the Rocky Mountains, and north from the Mexican line to the Bering Straits. Says the expedition headed by Col. Henry Leavenworth left 11 years prior and all hopes of their return were abandoned. Quite interesting, although many of the members did not survive the expedition. Other news of the day includes: "The United States Bank" "Violation of the Grave" "From Mexico" and more. Several ads as well. 4 pages in good condition.
