This is Barry's retained carbon of a letter he wrote to John N. Kinney, Supervisor of the Salmon National Forest, in 1932. Barry was trying to pin down the site of an "eighty acre bottom" that Clark passed through on August 22, 1805, in the Salmon River country. Barry kept carbon copies of many, but not all, of the letters he wrote. The journal entry to which Barry refers is found on page 154 of Volume 5 of The Journals of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, ed. by Gary E. Moulton (1988).
