"An extremely rare pamphlet." Sabin.

Mr. Hall was sent by the Presbyterian church in 1800 with two
other missionaries to the Mississippi Territory. They reached Nash-
ville in November, 1800, and from thence went on horseback by
way of the Chicasaw nation. They reached the territory in the
first week in December and left the third week in April, 1801. The
author in the preface states : "As I have been solicited by sundry
persons to publish an account of my travels throughout that part of
the Union, and having my own geographical curiosity highly grati-
fied by travelling through such a vast tract of country, the history of
which is little known ; presuming that a brief view of the interjacent
space between the settlements of Cumberland and the territory
together with a sketch of the history of that territory would afford
some gratification to my fellow citizens the following pages are with
deference submitted to the candor of the public by their humble
servant, the author."

This is the first history of this territory.
