Excerpt from Astoria, And, Captain Bonneville

Finding that I took an interest in the subject, he expressed a regret that the true nature and extent of his enterprise and its national character and importance had never been understood, and a wish that I would undertake to give an account of it. The suggestion struck upon the chord of early associations, already vibrating in my mind. It occurred to me that a work of this kind might comprise a variety of those curious details, so inter esting to me, illustrative of the fur trade of its remote and ad venturous enterprises, and of the various people, and tribes, and castes, and characters, civilized and savage, affected by its opera tions. The journals, and letters also, of the adventurers by sea and land employed by Mr. Astor in his comprehensive project.
