Excerpt from The Northwest Coast, or Three Years' Residence in Washington Territory
The fine bay north of the Columbia (shoal-water Bay), which was discovered and named by Meares in 1789, and surveyed by Lieutenant Alden, of the United States Coast Survey, in 1852, was actual... ly passed through by the boats of Wilkes's Exploring Expedition, who merely mentions the fact, without considering the bay of sufi cient importance either to give it a passing notice or even place it on his chart.
