Northwest Territory:

REPORT, OF THE COMMITTEE APPOINTED TO ENQUIRE WHETHER ANY, AND IF ANY, WHAT ALTERATIONS ARE NECESSARY IN THE LAWS PROVIDING FOR THE SALE OF THE LANDS OF THE UNITED STATES, NORTH-WEST OF THE OHIO. 19TH FEBRUARY, 1800.

[Philadelphia: 1800] 4pp, printed on rectos only. Bound in modern, hand-printed wrappers. Very Good. Two states of the title page exist: the other with the first 'of' misspelled 'fo'. The Committee advises that salt springs and licks, owned by the U.S., near the Muskingum and Miami Rivers, are used by squatters "who are engaged in the making of salt to a very considerable extent" and thus diminishing the value of those lands. The Committee recommends leasing the lands for periods of years. Evans 38825. NAIP w021651 [recording the title page with typographical error, and questioning whether our second state exists].
