Abstract:

This collection consists of a letter written to John Brown by Harry Innes on December 7, 1787. The letter begins with Innes offering his congratulations to Brown on his recent appointment to the U.S. Senate. Innes offers his assistance with Brown's legal clients while Brown is away conducting congressional business. The letter then becomes dominated by a discussion of politics. Innes covers such topics as the U.S. constitutional convention, Kentucky's pre-statehood political situation including navigation rights on the Mississippi River, and the Indian raids in the Kentucky District of Virginia. There is great importance placed on the political situation in the District of Kentucky and the navigation issue. He lists ten reasons why navigation rights should be granted to the United States. Innes hopes Brown "will be able to refute Mr. Jay's suggestion that the Western people had nothing yet to export and therefore the cession of the Mississippi would be no injury to them". Other political problems facing Kentucky and mentioned in this letter were: Kentucky constitutional conventions and revenue taxation.
