Description
Learned from Messrs. Pharoux and Des Jardins that Walker advised John E. Van Alen, when the latter went to survey lot no. 14 for Coxe's friends in Europe, not to go via Oswego, for the British Commander would stop him, but to go by Steuben and the road just cut by Pharoux and Des Jardins; asks for a minute statement of what occurred; the land in question is at the head of the St. Lawrence, part of [Alexander] McComb & Co's purchase from New York, and was sold by William Constable to Le Roy de Chaumont for himself, Peter Chassanis and others.
