Excerpt from Quarterly Publication of the Historical and Philosophical Society of Ohio: 1921-1923, Volumes XVI-XVIII
The following paper was prepared, originally, to be read before a Seminary in American Colonial History at the University of Cincinnati. As revised, the article aims to be an account of the Ohio Land Company's endeavors, together with some con siderations of the place of that corporation in the history of the Westward Movement in the Colonies.
The author is greatly indebted to Professor B. W. Bond of the University of Cincinnati, at whose suggestion the paper was undertaken; to Professor C. W. Alvord of the University of Illinois, for use of the map accompanying the paper; and to Miss L. Belle Hamlin, Librarian of the Historical and Philo sophical Society of Ohio, for assistance in securing the material used, and for the many helpful suggestions she has given him.
