During the course of his lecture Mr. DeWolf called attention to several interesting facts regarding the existing conditions about the State line. The location of several cities within the area was mentioned. A part of Beloit lies in Wisconsin and the other in Illinois. Parts of the Chicago and Northwestern, the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul, the Soo Line and the Illinois Central railroads lie within this strip. Five electric railroads have their right-of-way through this territory and other interests, including various enterprises, are to be found there, saloons, etc.

In the manuscript presented to the Historical Society, all of the laws, national and state, pertaining to the matter are given, as well as the joint report of the commission as it was submitted to President Jackson and Governor Reynolds.

Mr. DeWolf also spoke of the narrative as told by Mrs. John Kinzie in her book, “Waubun,” in which she tells of a horseback trip from Winnebago to Chicago with Mr. Kinzie and two servants in 1831. Many of the places which she mentions were shown on the screen while Mr. De Wolf spoke of them and several of the points of interest surrounding the early days in Chicago were also shown.

Mr. DeWolf was greatly pleased when he learned that the manuscript was to be printed and placed in the society's archives, as this is considered a great honor.
