Falls Of Ohio

Falls of Ohio Mural

Letter written by Colonel Jonas Simonds of the 6th Infantry (23rd March 1811?) from his post at Fort Fayette:


"...for better security of the transports under my command in descending the river--but I find no authorized pilot in that place or any authority for the employ of one.... ."  "...fully secure without employing a citizen pilot--except for the Falls of the Ohio."
