History of Washington - The Rise and Progress of an American ì State
The materials from which alone a history of Washington can be ì written have nowhere been assembled in one collection, with any ì degree of completeness. The State Historical Society has done ì something, but the material it has gathered is not yet arranged so as to be readily available. The State University also has a ì considerable collection which it is steadily and very ì methodically increasing. The State Library has something.
The shelves of the Oregon Historical Society also hold much ì that is as valuable to the historian of Washington as of Oregon, and is equally at his disposal. It is to be regretted ì that the State government has not already made such provision as ì most other States have made for collecting, arranging and ì preserving the materials for its history. The work can be done ì thoroughly and well at very moderate cost, once it is begun in a ì proper way. The greatest need will be for a competent secretary, ì whose heart will be in the work, who has already displayed some ì genius for it, and who has a wide acquaintance among the earlier ì settlers now living.
This is a scanned PDF version of a historically important text ì from the history of the Western United States. Because it is a ì reproduction, it may contain missing or blurred pages, poor ì pictures, errant marks, etc. We have taken every effort to avoid ì these problems.
Because the publication is in the PDF format, you can print ì these works on your printer or read them on the screen of your ì desktop or laptop or notebook.
Many of the books included in this library of historic western ì non-fiction literature also include a "MOBI" copy for direct ì (side-loading) to your electronic reader.
This book is new.
