About This Item

Wootton, 17 August 1850. 4 pp. 7 x 4 inches, fine. “... I have plagued you every 12 months since 1846.” Thomas Falconer (1805-1882), jurist and explorer. Late in 1850 he was appointed an arbitrator to decide the boundary between New Brunswick and Canada. In 1841 Falconer accompanied the Texan Santa Fe Expedition as an observer. Later that year, Falconer published his account of the expedition as Expedition to Santa Fé: An Account of Its Journey from Texas through Mexico, with Particulars of Its Capture. In 1844 he also published Notes of a Journey through Texas and New Mexico, in the years 1841 and 1842 in the Journal of the Royal Geographical Society of London. After returning to England, he published another major work on his travels, The Oregon Question; or a Statement of the British Claims to the Oregon Territory in Opposition to the Pretension of the Government of the United States of America. Late in 1850 he was appointed an arbitrator to decide the boundary between New Brunswick and Canada.
