"DEAR BROTHER St. Louis Sept. 23. 13'5. We arrived at thi place at twelve o'clock to-day from the Puc.fic Ocejn wheFe e remained during the last winter near the entrance of the Columbia River. This station we left on the 27th of March last and should have reached St. Louis early in August had we not been detained' by the snow which barred our pissage across the Rocky Mountains until the 24th of June. In returning through those moun talus we divided ourselves into several parties digressing from the route .by which we weal out iii order the more effectually to explore the and aucov j the most practicable route which does e t across the Continent by the way of the Missouri and Columbia'Rivers. In this we were completely successful and have therefore nq hesitation in declar mgt that such as nature has permitted we have "dis covered the Lest route which does exist across the Continent of North America in that direction. Such is that by way of the Missouri to the foot of the Rapids below the great falls of that river a distance of 2575 miles thence by land passiwjfu the Rocky Mountains to'a navigable part of the Kooskooske 340 and with UieKooikooke73 miles Leijijjs River 154 miles and the Columbia 413 miles lo the1acific Ocean making the total distance from the confluence if the Missouri and Mississippi to the discharge 01 die Columbia into the Pacific Ocean 3554 miles. The navigati'in of the Missouri may bo deemed good it difficulties arise from Us falling banks timber embedded in the thud of Us channels its sand-bars and steady rapidity of its current all which may be over come with a great degrte of certainty by using the necessary prf cautions. he passage by land of 340 mil -s from the 'falls of he Missouri In the Koos- koobke is the III t forrrmftble part of the tract prod Mcrots the Contnifu f this distance 200 miles is along a good maul 'and V 40 miles over tremendous mountains which lor 60 miles are coveted with eternal snows. A pasiage over these mountains is howl ver practicable from the latter part of June to the last of September and the cheap'rate at which hcrses are to be obtained from the Indians of the Reeky Mountains and west of them reduces the ex'- penres of transportation over' this 'portage to a mere trifle. .The navigation of the K-7o kooske Lewis's River and the Columbia is safe aud good from the 1st of April to the middle of August by making three purtiges on the latter river the first of which in descending is 1200 paces at the falls of Colum bia C6l miles up that river the second of two miles at the long narrow six miles below the falls and a third a so of two miles at the great raps 65 miles still lower down. The tide flows up the Columbia 183 miles and within seven miles of the greatT rapids. Large sloops may with safety ascend a hi h as tide water and'vessels of 500 ons burthen reidi tue entrance of the Multnomah iver a Jarge southern branch of the Columbia whicl takes its rise on the conlnes of New Mexico with the llerado and Apostle's rivers ducliarging itself into' lie Columbia 125 miles from its entrance into the Pacific ceau. I consider this tract across the Con- incut of immense advantage to the fur trade as all he furs collected in nine-tenths of tin most valuable ur country in America may be cjuvryed to the mouth t i the Columbia and shipped from thence to he East Indies by the 1st of August in each year and will of course reach Canton earlier than ihe furs which are annually exported from Montreal arrive in Great Britain. 41 In our outward-bound voyage we too the foot of the rapids below the great falls of he Missouri where wt" arrived on the 14lb of lune 1805. Not having et with any 01 the natives of the- Rocky Mountains we werev of course igno rant of the passes by land which existed through thtse mountains lo the Columbia river and had se even tnown the route wt were destitute of horses which would have been indispensably necessary40.euabl us to transport the requisite quantity ct ammunition arid otherstor.es to ensure ibr-reuainiug. pajJLjof jqijr. soy. age down the polytnljTa KAir lbejretore dclermiaed to navigate the AriM urjf a far as it "as pradicablej or unlcu we mptWith scjm .of \l& natives 'frorj whom we coold-oblaTn Corses and formation of ihrcoa'n trjr.vAccbrdlngly ejtookraiinost laborious bort atUe full of the Missouri of ifnYiiei' whi h effected withoar rcano and baggage by the 3d of July.

The couflu nce.of thf e is3S43 mile if iK / u h of thr Missouri by thr meanders of that river. \\'e arrived a tbfc three forts r or the Missouri the"27th of July. Nol having yet been so for lunate as lo rreei with the native although I had previously made several exertions for that purpose we were compelled to continue our route by "Themo t northerly of the thn e forks lhat to whiih we have given the name of J rsuu river was deemed the most proper for our purposes and re ac cqrdjngly aicendcd t 243 miles to the upper forks aud its extremeua\4gable point. Qu.the mumiu ofthe 17th of August 1 805,1 arrived at the f.irkf of Jefferson's river wht re I mtt Captain I.MUS who hart previously penetrated with a party ot three men to the w ters of tlieXxjlunibia dtscovticd a band of the Sboshone natioTi aod bad .fouuJ mc to induce 35 of their chiefs and warriors to accompany him to that place. From these people we learned hat the river on which they raided vriL3 not navi abFe and that a nas ge through the mountains in that direction was impracticable. lUing unwilling to confide in this ur/aygur- able account of the native it was concerted teif en- Captain LFWIS and m &elf that cue of U. should go forward tmmediatfly u-.nh a small party and explore his river while the other in the interim would lay up tlie.canot-s at .that place and engage the natives with their hrrses to assist in transporting our stores Hid baggage to their camp. Accordingly J set out tie next day passed the dividing mountainsl lween the waters of the Missouri and Columbia andjder scended the. river which I since called the Eatjk rk of Louis's river about 70 miles. Finding trTal the Indians' account of the country in th'edirectjon gf jrjat river was correct I returned und joined CapU LEWIS on August 29 at the Shosshone camp excessively fv tigned as .you may suppose having passed mo.uo- tains utmost inarctssiblc and compelled to subsist on berries during the greater pirtjof my route. We now purchased seventeen horses Cot the Indian and hired a guide who assured us that he could iofif teen da\s take us Ui a large river in an open country west of these mountains by a route some distance to the north of the river on which they lived and that by which the natives wet of the mountains visit .the plain of the Missouri for the purpose of Trailing the buffalo. Every- preparation 1uu made "we sat for ward with our guide on tht 31st of Augnat through these tremendous mountains in .vhich we continued until the 22d of $ ptttubvr before we reached the lower country beyond them. On our way we met with UIQ Olel'achshook a band or the Tuthapaks from whom we obtained an accession of seven horses ana exchanged eight or ten otliers this proved an iufiuite service to us as we were compelled to subsilt 00 horse beef about eight day before we reached the Koos- kooske. During our passage over thesd- mountains we suffered every thing which hunger cold and fatigue could impose nor did1 our difficulties termi on our arrival at the Kooskooske for although the Pollotepallors a numerous nation inhabiting that country 'e extremely hospitable and for a few trifling articles furnished us with ah abundance of roots and dried salmonthe food to which they were 1 accustomed we found that we could not subsist op these articlts aim almost all of us grew sick on rating them we were obliged therefore.to have recourse- to tljtt flesh of horses anil dogs as food to supply the de- ficvjncy at our guns which produced but Httje meat M game was scarce In the vicinity of our camp on the Kooskcoike where we were compelled to remain in order to construct our perogues to descend the river. AI this fai9njtbe salmon ar meagre and form but indifferent food. While we remained b T6 L was my self sick for several days and my friend Capt. Lttfis sufteted a severe indisposition. Having completed four perogue and a small canoe gave ourhorses- in charge to the Pollotepallors until we returned and on the 7th of October re harked for the Pacific Ocean. We descended by the route I have already mentioned. The water of the river being low at this season we experienced much difficulty in descending we found it obstructed by a great number of dilHcult and dangerous rapids in passing of which our perogues several times filled and the men escaped narrowly .ah their lives. How ever this difficulty does not exist in high water which Kappeux within the period whick I have- previously mentioned. We foundthe natives extr in.y nume rous and generally friendly though we bave on se veral occasyujs owed- our lives and the rate of the expedition to our number which consisted of \jnriy-oue n en. On the 17lh of November WP reached th ocean where various considerations induced us in spend the- Winter we therefure searched fur an eligible situation for that purpose and selected .1 spot en the South-side of a little riytr called by the natives .Ve/uf which discharges itself at a small bar oh the south-side of the Columbia and 1.4 miles j iihm point Adanu.
