Excerpt from Oregon: Its Resources, Climate, People, and Productions

IN the months of July and August of the past year, 1877, I accompanied, at the invitation of Mr. Wallis Nash, of 12, Queen Street, London, a party which paid a some what hurried visit to the State of Oregon; and I now, at the request of Mr. Nash, give here in the following report a short account of the aspects, climate, resources, and condition of the people of the State, which account is to a large extent extracted from official documents, but also supplemented by observations made by myself during the tour above referred to.

I extract from the official publications, because, from the numerous Opportunities which I have had of testing the statements contained in them, I believe them to be thoroughly trustworthy; and as they have been prepared with great care, they seem to me to give as complete and satisfactory an account of the country and its re sources, from the point of view required by the emigrant or capitalist, as can be condensed within the limits of a pamphlet.
