1118. CANAL, Panama.—[further continued].

With respect to the
Isthmus of Panama, I am assured by Burgoyne
* * * that a survey was made, that a canal
appeared very practicable, and that the idea
was suppressed for political reasons altogether.
He has seen and minutely examined the report.
This report is to me a vast desideratum, for
reasons political and philosophical.—
To Williiam Carmichael. Washington ed. ii, 397. Ford ed., v, 22.
