Description

Excerpt from History of the Expedition Under the Command of Captains Lewis and Clark, Vol. 1 of 3: To the Sources of the Missouri, Across the Rocky Mountains, Down the Columbia River to the Pacific in 1804-6 Sir, - In compliance with the request conveyed in your letter of May 25, I have endeavoured to ob tain, from the relations and friends of the late governor Lewis, information of such incidents of his life as might be not unacceptable to those who may read the narrative of his western discoveries. The ordinary occurrences of a private life, and those also while acting in a subordinate sphere in the army, in a time of peace, are not deemed suf ficiently interesting to occupy the public atten tion; but a general account of his parentage, with such smaller incidents as marked his early char acter are brie y noted; and to these are added, as being peculiarly within my own knowledge, what ever related to the public mission, of which an account is now to be published. The result of my inquiries and recollections shall now be offered, to be enlarged or abridged as you may think best; or otherwise to be used with the materials you may have collected from other sources.
