Nathaniel Hart Jr. to Orlando Brown, editor of the COMMONWEALTH, 3/15/1840: 1: <Some of the descendants of the Pioneers of the West have recently taken much interest in examining all the authentic sources of information connected with the early history of Kentucky. . . . It is believed that a large proportion of the native population of the State have felt and continue to feel a lively interest in the purpose of these investigations. Under this impression and with a conviction too that the subject well merits our loftiest regards, it is suggested that the patriotic pride of Kentuckians would be most laudably exhibited in their holding an anniversary commemorative of the first settlement of the Western Pioneers on the "savage cliffs" of the Kentucky. We have before us the example of our Brethren of New England whose patriotic and religious fervour is annually warmed by such periodical recurrence to the virtues and hardships of their Pilgrim fathers of the Plymouth Rock.> continued
