Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Albert Gallatin, 21 July 1807

21 July 1807

The reduction of the large map of the Western road was neglected. A small one shewing only the courses & principal towns but not all the details was however made & is sent (to be if you please returned: a copy may be made for you) The red line shews the road as reported by the Commissrs.—The rout by Union town is also designated, as well as the general direction of a road from Brownsville by Washington to Charleston, asked for by sundry petitioners instead of the reported one from Brownsville to Wheling. The Allegheny mountain extends from Gwin’s to Tomlinson’s—Respectfully

Albert Gallatin
