P.S. I was not supposed to be part of the permanent party to the Pacific Ocean, but Moses Reed was kicked out of the Corps and I was given the chance to go. I kept a journal of the trip, and received permission from the captains to publish it, but for some reason it has been lost to history. A map I made of the voyage has survived. I settled in Franklin County, Missouri and died in 1837.
