Excerpt from Sketch Book of Saint Louis: Containing a Series of Sketches of the Early Settlement, Public Buildings, Hotels, Railroads, Steamboats, Foundry and Machine Shops, Mercantile Houses, Grocers, Manufacturing Houses, &C

St. Louis, as a commercial emporium, has been for some years regarded as advancing more rapidly than any other place in the West. A few years ago, and some, perhaps most, of the old cities on the Ohio river were in advance of her. Many of our old citizens recollect very well when the merchants of the western portion of Illinois, and even of Missouri, purchased many kinds of goods at Cincinnati and Louisville, and brought them round here for sale. St. Louis, in point of population, of manufactures, and commerce, was behind either of the cities we have mentioned. But a mighty change has taken place. St. Louis in ten years has advanced with giant strides, and never in her history has she done so large a business or had as extended and prosperous commerce, notwithstanding the monetary crisis which hung, with leaden wings, over the entire country, as the year just closed in. Never were prospects for a heavy Spring trade more bright or promising than the one just ushered in.
