Additional Information From the Colton Storm catalogue: "The second Chicago imprint, aside from newspapers. The broadside accompanies the map and report of Lieutenant Allen's and H. R. Schoolcraft's visit to the Northwest Indians in 1832 in 23rd Congress, 1st Session, Document Number 323, House of Representatives, War Department. The broadside was intended "to correct some of its [i.e. the map's] principal omissions and defects."The appointment of Lieutenant Allen as Superintendent of the Harbor at Chicago was announced in the Chicago 'Democrat' for February 4, 1834. The account books of John Calhoun, Chicago's first printer and publisher of the 'Democrat', now in the collections of the Chicago Historical Society, contain a record of a charge of $1.50 against Lieutenant Allen for 100 copies of an errata sheet for a report. The charge is dated January, 1835. No other copy of this broadside has been found."
