Louisiana:

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE...BY A RESOLUTION OF THE HOUSE, "TO ENQUIRE BY WHAT MEANS THE MAIL MAY BE CONVEYED, WITH GREATER DISPATCH THAN AT PRESENT, BETWEEN THE CITY OF WASHINGTON, AND THE NATCHEZ AND NEW ORLEANS." 13TH DECEMBER, 1803. READ, AND REFERRED TO A COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE HOUSE ON THURSDAY NEXT.

[Washington: 1803] 5, [3 blanks] pp. Disbound [some loosening], Very Good. "The late cession of Louisiana by France to the United States, renders it an object of primary importance to have the nearest and most expeditious mode of communication established, between the city of Washington and the city of New Orleans the capitol of that province." The Committee thus urges a post road from Washington, "to pass through or near the Tuckabachee settlement, to the Tombigby settlement in the Mississippi territory, and from thence to New Orleans. And further, that a post road ought also to be established from the said Tombigby settlement to Natchez." FIRST EDITION. AI 5472 [3]. OCLC 54186405 [1].
