Overview

Excerpt from The Oregon Question, or a Statement of the British Claims to the Oregon Territory: In Opposition to the Pretensions of the Government of the United States of America

The following pages are a reprint of an argument relating to the pretensions of the American Government to the Oregon Territory, contained in a small work which I lately published, entitled, 'On the Discovery of the Mississippi, &c.' Some additions to it have been suggested by a work of a very intemperate character, written by Mr Farnham, and largely circulated in America, which contains statements that I could not have anticipated, and which it is right to notice. The subject itself, unfortunately, has obtained a new importance through the extraordinary conduct of the House of Representatives at Washington in passing a Bill for the Occupation of the Oregon Territory; a measure which, if it should become law, the general Government of the United States is incapacitated to enforce, so long as it shall respect the solemn obligations of an existing treaty.
