Title

Letter from William Clark to Jonathan Clark, 22 January 1807

Description

Clark writes his brother Jonathan from Washington, D. C., reporting on activities there and his flattering treatment in wake of the successful return of the expedition. He reports he has discussed the Burr Conspiracy with President Jefferson and expresses his own shock at Burr's attempt at such a scheme and misjudgement of the American people. He concludes by intimating that he might return to Louisville engaged as he has an "object in mind."
