Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Henry Dearborn, 23 June 1807

June 23d. 1807


On the 30th. of March I wrote to Mr. Dunbar & on the lt. of Aprill to Mr. Freeman, informing them of the want of funds for prosicuting the exploring voyage up the Arkansas, and of your determination for suspending the expedition for the present years, and I requested Freeman to undertake the survey of the lands, and the reusing the lines, according to treaties with the Cherokees & Chickasaws; but from a letter recieved from Mr. Dunbar dated the 12th. of May, it appears that my letters above referred to, had not been received, and I have directed duplicates to be forwarded. Your st.

H. Dearborn
