Additional Information From the Colton Storm catalogue: "The earlier issue contains a long article headed "A Letter from Oregon." which is signed by Francis Fletcher, Amos Cook, Joseph Holman, Robert Shortess, and R. L. Kilbourn, controverting some of the statements made by Obadiah Oakly about the Farnham expedition. Oakly's journal had appeared in the 'Peoria Register and North-Western Gazetteer, issues of December 1839 and January 1841 (present in the Graff Collection), and an interview with Oakly in the same paper had appeared on November 9, 1839, and in the 'National Intelligencer', November 23, 1839. The present letter was directed against the interview; it was later printed in the Peoria paper. In the later issue there is a long, unsigned article under the heading: Santa Fé and the Far west. From the Evansville (Indiana) Journal. / This is an earlier printing than the account described by Wagner-Camp from 'Niles' Register' for December 8, 1841. The account covers the arrangements for and the trip from Vincennes to Santa Fé on the road to California. Reprinted by Dawson. Dale Morgan believes the author was John McClure, according to Wagner-Camp."
