1107. CANAL, Big Beaver.—

I remember
having written to you, while Congress sat at
Annapolis, on the water communication between
ours and the western country, and to
have mentioned particularly the information I
had received of the plain face of the country
between the sources of Big Beaver and Cayohoga,
which made me hope that a canal of no
great expense might unite the navigation of
Lake Erie and the Ohio. You must since have
had occasion of getting better information on
this subject, and if you have, you would oblige
me by a communication of it. I consider this
canal, if practicable, as a very important work.—
To General Washington. Washington ed. ii, 250.
(P. 1787)
