Salt Lake. After a short stay there he proceeded past Ft. Bridger
to Ham's Fork and Smith's Fork, returning to California in
August.

An edition was published in Boston in 1860 identical except for
the title page and being printed on somewhat smaller paper. This
was sterotyped and printed by Houghton & Co., Riverside Press,
Cambridge, and published by Crosby, Nichols, Lee & Co. and may
therefore be the first issue, the plates being sent to S. F.

The plates are after sketches by Nahl, the celebrated S. F. art-
ist and they bear the inscription in addition, of Eastman &
Loomis, S. F. 288

Gilpin first crossed the plains in 1843 to Oregon, returning in
Oct., 1844. (See Niles Reg. Nov. 16, 1844, for account of return
trip).

One of his characteristic speeches delivered in Independence,
Mo., in 1849, is on the Pacific Railway, in which he advocated
building via South Pass and Snake River to the mouth of the
Columbia. He says that 15 years before (1845?) he had published
his Hydrographic map.

This work of Gilpin's, reprinted in 1874 as Mission of the
North American People, rearranged and with some additions, is a
unique feature in American literature. In the appendix to the
1874 edition, he reprints a pamphlet he says he published in 1856:
"Geographical Memoranda on the Pacific Railroad."

In 1860 Gilpin was living in Independence, Mo. He was after-
wards Governor of Colorado Territory. He says he spent the 4th
of July, 1843, with Fremont on the site of Denver. 292

[n. p., n. d.]

12 pp. 1-16, with a "Map of Denver, Auraria And High-

St., St. Louis

The history is dated Denver and Auraria, Jan. 1, 1860, and con-
tains a well written account of the early arrivals, with some per-
sonal reminiscences of Wm. Larimer.

From a reference to the map on page 13, it seems that it must
have formed part of a directory, printed early in 1860, but prob-
ably not in Denver. Perhaps it formed part of the Kansas Ga-
zeteer, advertised to be issued in 1860 by Sutherland & McEvoy
of St. Louis. 295

in that year. The book contains an account of the Ives-New-

I have not seen this nor can I give the exact title. Descrip-
tion from F. W. Cragin of Colorado Springs who had a copy in
1912

Villard in his Memoirs refers to writing and printing this.
Probably printed in St. Louis, and finished in May, 1860. He says
owing to delays, the guide was not gotten out on time for the
emigration in the spring of I860, consequently but few copies
were sold. In his Memoirs he gives an account of his Colorado
experiences during the summer of 1859, as correspondent for a
Cincinnati newspaper. *299

Denver City: Rocky Mountain News Co. 1861.

8 66 pp. 67-132 pp. adv.

This should have two maps. Both are lacking in the Bancroft
Library copy. From the text I judge one was entitled Map of the
Quartz Mining Region and the other a Map Showing the Routes
to and The Locality of Colorado City, 1860. Published by I. N.
Tappan. This last map of what I have a copy may not belong to
this book, as the routes only begin at the Missouri and from re-
marks on the supplementary leaf it would appear as if the route
maps showed the railroads east of the Missouri as well.

The preface, dated Gold/en City, J. T., January, 1861, refers to a
map published the year before from the drawings and observa-
tions of A. D. Richardson and widely circulated. The supple-
mentary leaf begins : "Since the publication of our first edition

of this book, a bill has passed the House of Representatives

Feb., 1861 organizing Colorado Territory. *301

highly valuable. A map of the western division, by John R. Rey,

Most of the emigrants were for the Salmon River mines. A

miles from Ft. Hall and hence the wagons of the emigrants were
loaded too heavily. From South Pass they traveled by Lander's
Road.

Crawford had charge of the expeditions of emigrants across the
plains in 1861, '62 and '63, but this is the only printed record I
have seen of them. Crawford crossed the plains first in 1842 and
his journal has been printed in 1897 as volume one, number one,
