 Finding Aid

Barton writes that he is unable to "go to Fayette, St. Louis or Kaskaskia" since he wishes "to visit in a S.W. direction." He also writes that he is "willing to resume [Alcorn] or Hickman," at Hayden's option. Barton was one of the first U.S. senators from Missouri, serving from 1821 to 1831.
