    Plan of the Alton & Terre Haute Rail Road from Alton to the Indiana State Line [caption title] by [Illinois]. [Railroads]

    St. Louis, 1850. Very good.. Large folding map on two joined sheets, in total measuring approximately 25 x 46 inches. A couple of small separations at folds, light wear at edges. Scattered faint foxing. A rare, large format map that depicts the planned route for the "Alton & Terre Haute Railroad" through Illinois. Based on this plan and survey, conducted in December 1850, the Illinois legislature chartered the Terre Haute & Alton Railroad early the next year, and the entire line was completed in 1856. Under significant final stress, it was sold and reorganized into the St. Louis, Terre Haute, & Alton Railroad in 1862. The upper portion of the map shows the route of the proposed line between the two towns, which passed through Hillsborough, Shelbyville, and Charleston in central Illinois. A large section of the right-hand hand side provides a detailed topographical profile of the route, as compared to the level of the Mississippi River at the same latitude. The engineer responsible for the plan and map, William P. Crocker, was also the engineer for the Illinois Central Railroad, and worked on the Fitchburg and Boston, Concord, and Montreal Railroads in the East. The lithographer, Julius Hutawa, was the first to establish a business in St. Louis, doing so in 1833, and he continued to be the only operation in town until the arrival of August and Leopold Gast in 1852. OCLC locates one copy, at the British Library; none in auction records.

    [Autograph Letter from a Deaf Gold Prospector in 1868 Washington Territory] by Goodwin, Benton. [Washington Territory]

    [Moxee, W.T., 1868. [4]pp., on an octavo bifolium. A fine 1868 letter from an Indiana emigrant to Moxee, in Yakima County of the Washington Territory. Benton Goodwin left Greencastle, Indiana, to hunt for gold in central Washington, and here writes home in order to report on his situation to a woman, Catharine Oliver, that he hopes to marry upon his return. It reads in part: "When I arrived here in this valley, there were some settlers here in 1865. But the persons are now estimated at about 300. They built the loghouses for themselves. None of any fine frame house is here. There are lots of Indians in the other valley close to me. They are good and friendly -- I am very glad of that -- I get the good prospects here.... I have been very busy at my good claim every day.... I will have the great deal of money in one or two years. My claim & cattle & grains are worth three thousand dollars.... You had been thinking of me that I was foolish to sell my farm at Greencastle Ind. But I have not spent all of money. I must save one cent as your husband." If the language in the letter seems somewhat odd, it is likely because Benton Goodwin was deaf. He travelled west from Indiana with his three brothers and other family in 1865, and was briefly taken captive by the Sioux en route, but was released supposedly because his signaling led the Indians to think him insane. The Goodwin family ranched in Yakima County, and sold cattle throughout Washington, Idaho, and Oregon, but Benton apparently traveled widely across Washington to seek out new gold strikes, and his letter references other prospecting efforts "over the Cascade Mountains." An excellent frontier mining letter from an unlikely prospector in the Pacific Northwest.
