In the number of the North American Review,
just published, Hillard and Brown, Cambridge, ad
vertue as in press, " The Life of John Ledyard the
American Traveller, comprising Selections from his *
Journals and Correspondents: by Jared Starks."
The following notice is given of this work.
A few particulars in the singular character of
Ledyard are well known, and have been often cited
as examples of extraordinary energy and decision of
mind, and as evidences of uncommon love of ad
venture and ardor of pursuit. But no general ac
count of his life has been written, nor indeed any
thing more than a very brief and imperfect sketch,
which was drawn up in England by the secretary of
the African Association. This was d me a short
time after his death, in the year 1790, as a tribute to
his memory for havingsacrificed his life in promoting
the interests of that society. But the writer had
scanty materials, and know hardly any thing of Led
yard's history, except during the three last years of
his life. The notices contained in Biographical
Dictionaries, both in this country and England, are
copied from this memoir, and are equally imperfect.
It is understood, that Mr. Sparks has obtained
from different branches of I.edyard's family and
from other sources, his manuscript journals, and
many of his original letters, which afford materials
for a more full and authentic biography. From
these papers the volume now promised to the pub
lie has been prepared. The incidents of his life
are extremely various, and many of them excite a
strong interest bv the enthusiasm, perseverance, and
fflfcommon vigor of mind, which they indicate. Tfe

LIFE OF JOHN LEDYARD.
lions, and afterward constructed a canoe with his
own hands on the bank of the Connecticut River at
Hanover, in which he descended alone to Hartford.
The pursuits of a missionary, and the study of theol
ogy, not proving congenial to his temper, he em
barked on a voyage to the Mediterranean and the
West Indies. After returning home, he visited
F.ngland, joined the British navy, obtained a post in
Cook's last expedition, with which he continued
more than four years, till it arrived again in Eng
land. He was in the skirmish in which Cook lost
his life, at the Sandwich Islands, and was near the
great navigator when he fell. At the close of the
American war he came back to this country, having
been absent eight years, and was the first to pro
pose a voyage to the Northwest coast. In coi. art
with Robert Morris, lie planned such a voyage, but
after a year spent in an unsuccessful attempt to pro
cure a vessel and fit it out, the project failed. With
letters from Mr. Morris and other gentlemen he
hastened to Europe, intending there to make an ef
fort to accomplish his wish. T or this purpose he
visited Spain and France, and more than uvo years
passed away in negotiations with mercantile compa
nies and individuals, but without success. He was
intimate with Jefferson (at that time our minister in
Paris,) with Lafayette, and with Paul Jones, who
encouraged and aided him.
After encountering numerous difficulties, and not
succeeding in his project of a voyage to the North
west coast, he formed the design of going by land
from Paris to Bering's Straits, thence crossing to
the American continent, and proceeding homeward
over the Rocky Mountains, with a determination to
explore those unknown regions. Through thu in
tercession ofthe Russian minister and Baron Grimm,
permission was granted by the Empress of Russia
for him to pass through her dominions. In London
he was patronized by Sir Joseph Banks and other
gentlemen of eminence. He went over to Ham
burgh, thence to Copenhagen, Stockholm, and
around the Gulf of Bothnia in the midst of winter to
St. Petersburg. He arriv' d there when the Em
press was on her famous tour to the Crimea, but by
the aid of Count Segur and Professor Pallas he ob
tained a passport from the proper minister and set
off for Siberia. It was so late in the season before
be reached the borders of Kamtschatka, that the
governor of Yakutsk would not suffer him to proceed
* urll >er till the opening of spring. Meantime the
empress became suspicious of his designs, am sent
