Here I desire to acknowledge the aid which has been readily extended
to my undertaking by the Delegate from Minnesota Hon. HENRY M.
RICE whose faithful and unwearied services I will take the liberty
to add in behalf of the territory, merit the highest praise. I am
also indebted for valuable information to EARL S. GOODRICH, Esq.,
editor of the Daily Pioneer (St. Paul) and Democrat.
In another place I give a list of the works which I have had occasion
to consult or refer to.
