History of the expedition of
Captain Lewis and Clark, 1804-5-6; reprinted from the
edition of 1814;
J. Neilson Barry annotated his copy of Lewis and Clark's journals, adding modern names of geographic features and drawing tiny sketch maps in the margins. Here are pages 426 and 427 from Hosmer's edition of the Lewis and Clark journals (1902) with Barry's annotations. The journal entry describes, in Lewis' words, the day in August 1804 when Clark learned from the Lemhi Indians that the Salmon River was not a practicable route to the Pacific.
