About this Item

(DELAWARE AND RARITAN CANAL). Contemporary copy of a letter from New Jersey governor Isaac H. Williamson to Secretary of War John H. Eaton, Elizabeth Town, 4 June 1829. 1 1/2 pages, quarto. Unsigned. Some cellophane tape repairs at edges, else very good. Transmitting to the War Dept. to lay before President Jackson a resolution of the New Jersey legislature on the future construction of the Delaware and Raritan Canal, and requesting that the federal government "cause the grounds and streams lying between the two rivers to be explored and examined by the Engineers of the United States." An unsigned contemporary copy, probably sent by Williamson's office to a supporter of the canal, as it descended in the family of an original officer of the canal company.
