Departing Potosi on 6 November 1818, the author and Levi Pettibone travelled nearly 900 miles meeting many new settlers en route to what is now Springfield, Missouri. It was during this expedition that Schoolcraft travelled into the Ozark Mountains which overlap northern Arkansas and southern Missouri. Schoolcraft is renown for his work in both ethnology and geography. In 1832, he discovered the source of the Mississippi River. Howes, S-185; Sabin, 77858.
