Territorial Papers, LouWana Missouri Territory 13/148,343. This petition is from the "Undersigned Citizens of the District of Saint Louis, in the District of Louisiana" which indicates that James [Tallent] must have been resident in St Louis at this time (also because none of the names of his later associates at Murphy's Settlement are on the list).From: Robert Sollars http://www.sollars.org
1805 - 27 Dec., James Talent signed memorial from St. Louis to the president supporting Governor,.Wilkinson who had had reports unfavorable to him circulated throughout the U.S. There were 5 texts to this memorial, one in English, four in French. The Territorial Papers prints the French text but only the subscribers to the English text. James Talent and John Henderson's names appear together as signers of the English text. Many of the signers were not literate and they made their marks. Territorial Papers, 13/343 This petition is from the "Citizens of the Territory" and though dated as from St. Louis, it is identified as "Territoire de la Louisiane." This time a number of the signers are those people associated with Murphy's Settlement--William Murphy, and Frans Murphy both signed with an X.
