 COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, June 25, 1806  Page 2 references: "...a letter from St. Louis...says Lieut. Pike returned a few since for reconnoitering the head waters of the Mississippi--All I can understand of his tour is, that the Mississippi heads out of a large lake, and runs a considerable distance very narrow and deep.--The climate very cold." Also an item concerning Commodore Truxton getting caught in "political intolerance" (see).  A very brief report on the "Slave Trade".
Four pages, never bound nor trimmed, very nice condition.
