The red dots mark the Canoe Track by which I descended. The black, note the deepest channel." John Vaughan, secretary of the American Philosophical Society, was asked by the Members to get "some further account of it for publication" from the donor. Brown replied on 10 June 1802 that the map "of the Muscle Shoals which you did me the favor to present to the Society, was taken under the direction of Gen[era]l Wilkinson who transmitted it to a friend together with a short description which unluckily was attached to a private confidential letter, from which his correspondent would not even suffer me to make an extract. Gen[era]l Wilkinson will no doubt supply the deficiency on his arrival at Philadelphia." ; Language: English; APS Digital ID: APSdigobj3462
