Title

Letter from William Clark to Jonathan Clark, 12 January 1810

Description

Clark writes his brother Jonathan from Washington, D.C., with updates regarding his success in getting possession of expedition records and the steps he is taking to get the expedition history written and published. He still is not inclined to accept the governorship of Upper Louisiana if it is offered. He is in good standing with the President and Secretary of War. He fears he won't be successful regarding brother George's claim [for payment for military expenses] from the government but hopes to get him a pension.
