"Pike set out from St. Louis on July 15, 1806, and traveled westward, sighting the Colorado peak now bearing his name on Nov. 23. He then moved southward to seek the Red River for his return home. He missed the Red River and was imprisoned by Spanish authorities and taken to Santa Fe." In 1811 an English edition was prepared by Dr. Rees from a manuscript copy sent to England while the American edition was being printed. This edition has a much better arrangement, with corrections of grammar." Jenkins Basic Texas Book 163A, Howes P373, Rader 2677, Wagner-Camp 9.2., Graff 3292.
