From the great American Historian and Author, Geo. Bancroft.
Mr. RichardEdwards, , New York, June 27, 1860
My Dear Sir :- Accept my best thanks for your most instructive work on the Great
West. It is elaborate and thorough, and combines a mass of information to which it is important to
have access, and which, as far as I know, has never been brought so conveniently, or so fully within
reach of the public. I remain, dear Sir,
Very truly, your obliged,
