Excerpt from Astoria: Or Anecdotes of an Enterprise Beyond the Rocky Mountains

About two years ago, not long after my return from a tour upon the prairies of the far West, I had a conversation with my friend, Mr. John Jacob Astor, relative to that portion of our country, and to the adventurous traders to Santa Fe and the Columbia. This led him to advert to a great enterprise set on foot and conducted by him, between twenty and thirty years since, having for its Object to carry the fur trade across the Rocky Mountains, and to sweep the shores of the Pacific.
