1804 Thomas Jefferson Louisiana Purchase Meriwether Lewis & Clark Expedition


Message from the President

Of the United States

To Both Houses of Congress.

8th November, 1804.

Read, and Ordered to be Referred to the Committee

Of the Whole House on the State of the Union.



Thomas Jefferson

Meriwether Lewis

Louisiana Purchase



Washington City: William Duane & Son, 1804. This Presidential message had three documents attached, all historic. The third one, on western mines, is incomplete here, missing quite a few pages. The other two are complete. The first document is an extract of a letter from Don Pedro Cevallos to Charles Pinckney with a translation, and a letter from the Marquis of Casa Yrujo to Secretary of State James Madison with a translation. Both letters express Spain’s abandoning their opposition to the Louisiana Purchase. The second document is a proclamation by Jefferson establishing a Customs District and Port of Entry at Mobile on the Gulf Coast. The third is Moses Austin’s Summary Description of the Lead Mines in Upper Louisiana, Also, an Estimate of Their Produce for Three Years Past.


Jefferson’s State of the Union include his plans to organize the newly acquired Louisiana Territory. He reports that governmental structures are being established in an area near New Orleans. Jefferson also speaks of his hope in dealing peacefully with the Native American tribes in the area.

Of great interest in the third document, in a letter by Amos Stoddard, Captain Lewis is mentioned - In consequence of a request made me by captain Lewis, before he left this, I now do...This is an extraordinary mention of Lewis having left on the Lewis and Clark expedition. Stoddard and Lewis were army friends and Lewis had just left on his grand historic journey to explore the Louisiana Purchase. (Lewis was to write a letter to Stoddard a few days before he died in 1809.)

Paper is worn throughout with dog-earing, some foxing, and tears in margins, toning, &c. Pages are more uniform throughout than they appear below.
