The Alta Heiser Collection Index Vol. 3, January 1, 1944 & December 18, 1947. In 1799, William Irwin on a trip to Pennsylvania carried the word that Robert McClellan had “entirely broke himself by Bail”. Whatever were his difficulties, he did not stay “broke”. A much blurred letter was written in Louisville on the April 20, 1802, in which Robert McClellan told William McClellan that he reached that place by water in company with Lt. Pike, and was led up with a fever, that made him almost deaf. He hoped he would be able in a few days to ride to Lexington, Kentucky where the $200 William McClellan had mentioned would be paid “on sight”. He said to let a certain party have a certain piece of land “providing he gives up the bond not other way’.
