Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1896 edition. Excerpt: ...be pursued by a larger body of Indians, who would hasten to the mouth of Maria's River to intercept them." The record of the last two days in this most remarkable journal of the most notable expedition that has ever been, perhaps, is as follows: "September 22. When the rain having ceased, we set out for Cold water Creek, about three miles from the mouth of the Missouri, where we found a cantonment of the United States troops, with whom we passed the day. "September 23. Descended the Mississippi and round to St. Louis, at which place we arrived at 12 o'clock, and, having fired a salute, went on shore, where we received a most hearty and hospitable welcome from the whole village." Captain William Clark was a Virginian, born in 1770. He was, after this expedition, promoted to brigadier-general, and two years later was made governor of Missouri. He died at St. Louis in 1838, universally lamented and beloved for his brave, gentle, and generous disposition, and his devotion to his great country. His companion in this bold expedition, Captain Meriwether Lewis, was also a Virginian, born in 1774. He was private secretary to President Jefferson in 1801, and the President trusted him entirely in the great work on which he was sent. Jefferson wrote a memoir of the explorer and extolled his merit. He was the first governor of Missouri after the return. But his mind had been greatly broken from long exposure, and being subject to temporary fits of insanity, committed suicide two years later. BLACKBOARD WORDS.
